She’s the wind beneath my wings
Homely with smile as wide and friendly as her heart, Ms. Thelma T. Dumale is one friend any newcomer migrant worker would seek to have.
Quick to lend a helping hand whenever her help is asked for, she’s unafraid of any repercussion her extending assistance to a complicated and dangerous situation may befell her. Her ardent concern for needy fellow OFWs is full of zealousness; one cannot help but wonder where she actually gets it. Working full-time as a household worker for 13 years and a very active officer of various Filipino organizations, she hardly has enough time to spare for other matters such as representing an incarcerated colleague.
Her readiness to lend a helping hand to others is not left unnoticed. Mrs. Dumale is a multi-awarded OFW. She’s a recipient of the prestigious Gabriela Silang Awards 2001 and included in the 10 most outstanding Filipinos in Hong Kong in 2000.
With the numerous awards given to her, Aling Thelma still continues to help any kababayan in need of her help. She’s unstoppable.
