DOLE: More than 200,000 land and sea-based OFWs receive cash assistance

-

An top official from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) claimed that around 200,000 land and sea-based overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) have already received the USD200 one-time cash assistance since it started to accept application.

DOLE International Labor Affairs Bureau (ILAB) Director Alice Visperas said in a statement that around 204,209 OFWs have received the cash assistance; of this, 177,117 are land-based while 27,092 are sea-based.

Visperas did not mention the breakdown of the beneficiaries or which countries have the most recipient.

Recently, the Philippine Overseas Labor Offices (POLO) in Dubai announced the resumption of application process for OFWs in the emirate after the Philippine government approved the additional funds for the 10,000 more OFWs.

Thousands of OFWs call for transparency and reveal the names of the beneficiaries as most of them haven’t received the cash assistance.

The steps on how to claim the cash assistance is through polodubaiportal.org.
