CamSur Native is First Pinoy Mayor In United Kingdom

PINOY – The new mayor of Charming town in West Sussex, England in the United Kingdom is a Filipino.

Lots of Filipinos migrated in the United Kingdom to work, study, or settle down. They like this country because they pay a bigger wage and a good benefits package.

Aside from the good salary, the weather in that country is much desirable and most of its people are nice and decent.

“Nurses in the Philippines have a general caring nature, provide a high level of empathy and compassion towards patients,” said Richards.
