It is the holiday season once again and everyone is looking forward to spend Christmas with their loved ones. However, not everyone is given this luxury, especially the overseas Filipino workers who are thousands of miles away from their families and friends in the Philippines.

While it is hard for OFWs to be away for the holidays, their families in the Philippines equally long for their presence. A young girl was not able to hold back the tears when she was surprised by her OFW mother who has been away in the past six years.

In a video by Kat Leandicho for Philippine Star, the OFW mom who flew all the way from the Middle East dressed up as a mascot to surprise her daughter who wished to see her for the holidays.

The OFW mom first stepped on stage to hand out a gift to her daughter and when the latter received the gift, host Tim Yap said that they have another surprise for her and asked the mascot to take off her headpiece.

Upon seeing her mother’s face, the girl immediately approached her for a tight hug and a heartwarming song started playing in the background and ballad group The Company started singing a song for them which made the reunion even more memorable and emotional.

The mother-daughter reunion happened during the launch of Lazada’s 12.12 grand year-end sale on Monday, December 10.

Watch the video below.
