POLO-Abu Dhabi temporarily suspends receiving cash assistance application from OFWs


At the height of a pandemic, the Office of the Labor Attache in Abu Dhabi issued a statement that they will temporarily stop receiving cash assistance application from overseas Filipino workers whose livelihood has been affected by Covid-19 impact.

According to a statement, dated May 11, they will continue to receive applications once their request for additional funds to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has been approved.

DOLE has started to provide AED730 or $200 to Filipinos who have been terminated and on ‘no work no pay’ arrangement.

“Makakaasa po kayo na magbibigay kami kaagad ng panibagong abiso kapag puwede na kaming tumanggap muli ng aplikasyon,” the statement read.

Atty. Alejandro Padaen, the labor attache in Abu Dhabi, said that they will process all the applications that they have received before they closed and they will distribute the cash assistance to those ‘qualified’ beneficiaries which is based on ‘first come first serve’ basis before the requested additional fund is approved.
