All of us have been affected by the pandemic this year, in different ways. As a domestic worker (and possibly as a parent, sibling, child or friend), you will have faced challenges–
at the very least you will have felt some uncertainty about the current situation and worries about what the future might bring. While we hope for the best for 2021, none of us can predict the future – instead, we need to do what we can to plan for it, to protect ourselves and our loved ones as much as possible.

This month, we’re talking about Christmas. Afterall, in the Philippines the Christmas season has already begun. From September onwards, our houses are lovingly decorated, trees are put up, and parol (Christmas stars) are secured in place. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, is what we say – but the truth is Christmas can sometimes be far from jolly for migrant domestic workers.
