ANNOUNCEMENTS: Contacting Family Members

Dear Kababayan

It is great news to know that MIGRANTE International are also making all efforts in finding ways for the migrants all over the world to contact their relatives. Many migrants are unable to get a hold of their loved ones back in the Philippines. If you are currently having difficulty getting a hold of your loved ones, please send us their names at and we will immediately report it back to the Philippines to help efforts not only in rebuilding spirits and the nation but also relationships through simple communication and verification of safety and condition.
