Philippine gov’t to give Php10,000 to OFWs whose work has been affected by coronavirus

- Advertisment -

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced on Wednesday that cash assistance amounting to USD200 (over PHP10,000) will be provided to overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) whose work were affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said the government is doing its best to address the immediate needs of displaced workers and those belonging to the most vulnerable sectors during this public health emergency situation.

“Similarly, we have crafted an assistance program for our OFWs whose works were disrupted due to the Covid 19-pandemic. We are looking at about 70,000 OFWs who will be provided with (USD200) in cash assistance each,” he said in a statement.

To avail of the program, OFWs must submit their certificate of employment issued by their agencies. Their application will be evaluated and processed by the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) or Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).

The Global Filipino Magazine (TGFM) has already reached out to the POLO-OWWA office here in Dubai but they haven’t gotten back to us yet.
