Fortune favored an overseas Filipino worker at the recently-held Emirates Draw winning AED 77,777 or Php 1,067,141.52*

Jeanette Orquia, an OFW working for over seven years in Ajman, said that it was only her second time to join Emirates Draw and couldn’t believe when she learned that she won!

“My winning number was 2173673 which I took from my birthdate as well as my parents’ – I feel so grateful for this blessing!” said Orquia in an interview with The Filipino Times.

When asked how she plans to spend it, the Ajman-based OFW said that she’s thinking of donating to a charitable cause and investing a considerable portion of the pot prize for her future.

“Thank you so much to Emirates Draw for this life-changing opportunity here in the UAE. For my fellow Filipinos, please do try Emirates Draw to get your chance to win!” said Orquia.
