Manila, Philippines – Sisimulan na ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) ang pagpo-proseso ng paglalabas ng financial aid nito para sa overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) na apektado ng COVID-19.

Sinabi ni Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III na sisimulan na ng Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) at iba’t ibang Philippine Overseas Labor Offices (POLOs) ang pagpoproseso ng paglalabas ng financial assistance matapos aprubahan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang pagbibigay ng PHP1.5 bilyon sa ahensya.

“Overseas workers, both land-based and sea-based, who have been displaced by a lockdown in a foreign country will be given a one-time financial assistance amounting to PHP10,000 or USD200, or the equivalent amount in their host countries, under the Department of Labor and Employment’s AKAP (Abot Kamay ang Pagtulong) program for OFWs,” aniya.

Dagdag pa ni Bello na ang assistance program ay “good until the available funds are used up”.

Giit pa ni Bello, hindi lamang mga documented worker ang makakabilang sa mga makatatanggap kundi maging undocumented workers, hanggat mayroon silang “undertaken” actions sa regularization o mga aktibong miyembro sila ng OWWA.

Dagdag ni Bello, ang paunang pagpo-proseso at pagtataya ng mga kwalipikadong DOLE-AKAP recipients, ay para sa mga bansang lubhang apektado ng COVID-19, kagaya ng mga nasa Middle East at Africa (Bahrain, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia at United Arab Emirates).

Kabilang din ang mga bansa sa Europa at Amerika (Canada, Cyprus, Italy, Germany, Greece, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, U.S.) at Asia (Australia, Brunei, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Macau, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, New Zealand.)

Sinabi ni Bello na kabilang sa eligibility ng DOLE-AKAP ay mga Filipino na nagtrabaho sa ibang bansa na apektado ng virus na hindi nakatanggap ng anumang financial assistance mula sa kanilang host government o foreign employer, at mga na-displaced dahil sa Covid-19 lockdown ng pamahalaan kung saan sila nagtatrabaho.

Upang ma-avail ang programa “on-site”, dapat magsumite ng mga sumusunod na dokumento ang OFWs sa kani-kanilang POLO:

“a. Accomplished application form for the special cash assistance which is downloadable at their respective POLO website or social media account;

b. Photocopy of their passport and/or travel documents;

c. Proof of overseas employment, such as a valid OEC, residence ID, visa, reentry-visa etc.

d. Proof of loss of employment on account of the Covid-19 disease; and

e. Proof of a pending case that has caused their current “undocumented status, such as case reference number, case endorsement stamped by the POLO, etc.

On the other hand, the Balik Manggagawa, or repatriated OFWs are required to submit the following documents to their respective regional or local OWWA offices:

a. Accomplished application form for special cash assistance downloadable at www.dole-akap.owwa.gov.ph website;

b. Copy of passport or travel documents;

c. Proof of overseas employment, such as valid OEC, residence ID, visa/re-entry visa, etc. and

d. Proof of loss of employment due to the Covid-19 disease. ” RNT/MM
