Migrants' counter at CKS airport

Migrants' counter at CKS airport

DEAR READERS,

Following several years of discussions with NGOs, labor groups, and government agencies, the Council of Labor Affairs said it will be unveiling a service center for foreign workers at the CKS International Airport tomorrow. The emergency counter for migrants will be located on the groundfloor of Terminal 1, a media invitation issued by the CLA over the weekend said.

The center's launch will be attended by officials from labor-sending countries, representatives of various non-governmental organizations, and migrant advocates. We will have more details about the CKS International Airport foreign workers' counter on January 22.

DEAR KABAYAN,

I hope that you will run at least one of my poems.

DEAR LYNN,

Thanks for writing!

Hamon ng Buhay

By Lynn Ricafranca

Ako'y naglalakbay sa hamon ng buhay

Na wari ba'y sinusubok aking

katatagan

Kung hanggang saan at

kailan makakayanan

Tanging Diyos lamang

ang nakakaalam.

Ako'y umibig, nagmahal ng lubusan

Na kahit buhay ko ay handang i-alay

Ngunit bakit sadyang kay damot

ng kapalaran

Lalaki kong minahal isa palang

salawahan.

Matapos angkinin puri ko't dangal

Iniwan akong wari ba'y isang basahan

Puso ko'y sugatan, mga mata sa

luha ay hilam

At ang matinding kahihiyan mag-

isang pinasan.

Bunga ng ating pagmamahalan

ngayon ay malaki na

Wala ka man lang bang balak

na kilalanin siya?

Anak na sa iyo'y naghahanap, ayaw

mo bang makita?

Lukso ng dugo sa puso mo ba'y

di madama?

Salamat sa pag-ibig mong huwad

Ang isang tulad mo, di dapat

mahalin ng wagas

Sa hamon ng buhay, ako ngayon

ay sadyang kay tatag

Walang galit o poot, pagpapatawad

sa iyo'y matagal ko nang naigawad.
