The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) continues accepting applications for AKAP program or cash assistance program from overseas Filipino workers across the world whose livelihood has been affected by Covid-19 pandemic.

According to a ptvnews.ph report, they have already received more than 400,000 applications as of May 12, three times more than the agency’s target of 150,000 with an alloted budget of Php1.5-billion.

So far, 142,000 applications have been approved and USD200 or AED730 has been given to over 100,000 OFWs around the world.

In a previous report, DOLE has requested the Department of Budget and Management for an additional Php2.5-billion, however, only Php1-billion has been approved.

  12. bakit hnd nakaka avail ang Thailand dito sa sinasabi nilang Dole Akap Assistance madami din na OFW dito na affected ng covid nawalan ng income dahil dito tapos hnd kasama ang bansang Thailand sa assistance na ito kung mayron man saan ito kukunin at i aapply?

  13. Ang lakas nyo magbalita ng ganyan maraming nabigyan e samantalang mas madami kayong hndi binigyan..ni confirmation nga lng s email wala kaming natanggap. 730 aed pa kaya..mga hayop kayong nasa dubai consulate.lahat ng requirements naisubmit pero walang tulong n binigay..kung tutuusin dapat nga hndi n kelangan ng requirements dahil lahat nman tlga apektado s pandemiang ito..dapat lahat ng pilipino tulungan nyo hndi ung mamimili lng kyo ng aabutan nyo. Nagtatanggalan n nga s mga kanya kanyang trabaho ang karamihan at tanging gobyerno ng Pinas lamang ang inaasahang tutulong s mga pilipino d2 s ibang bansa pero pahirapan pa ang alam nyong gawin. Paasa pala ang alam nyo
