An Emirati has taken to social media to express his gratitude toward Filipino workers who he said have helped make the United Arab Emirates “a better place.”
In the 62 days that he’s been making videos, Khalid Al Ameri said he’s met a lot of Filipinos — technicians, artists, nuclear power plant employees and those in the service sector, among them — and that he was impressed with their joyful nature.
“That is what the Filipino community has brought to this country. Their joy of life, their kindness, their ability to smile no matter what,” Ameri said. “Through that, they make this country a better place.”
