Kuwait Bayanihan Aids Striking Workers Who Were Going Hungry

A Kuwait Times report sparked what Filipinos call ‘bayanihan’  aimed at helping a group of laborers from all nationalities who are suffering due to nonpayment of salaries. About 200 laborers, 100 of them Filipinos,  went on a work strike to protest against nonpayment of their salaries for months. The men were forced to beg for food and alms in order to survive after months of not being paid. There was an outpouring of support after the publication of their story. First the Philippine Embassy delivered the men some food and basic needs. Then various Filipino community organizations also brought help.
