A top official at the Philippine Overseas Labor Office revealed that as of April 21, they have already received 25,733 cash assistance application.

The cash assistance is part of the Philippine government’s help for OFWs whose work have been affected by coronavirus.

“As of 12:01am, April 21, the total applications we received have reached 25,733. These are all subject to evaluation–whether the request will be approved or denied,” Labor attache Felicitas Bay told Gulf News.

She also revealed that out of 25,733 applicants, only 4,732 applications have been evaluated.

The first batch of recipients, meanwhile, received the AED 730 cash assistance on Tuesday.

“Around 250 Filipinos will receive the AED 730 cash assistance through a remittance centre today,” she added.

On April 21, POLO-Dubai has also suspended the acceptance of cash assistance application due to lack of funds.

“The public is hereby informed that pursuant to the directive of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), the POLO in Dubai and the Northern Emirates will temporarily suspend acceptance of applications for the DOLE one-time financial assistance for displaced OFWs due to Covid-19,” the statement read.
