The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) had recently launch their Program tagged as “Balik-Pinas Balik-Hanapbuhay” as support to Overseas Filipino Workers who had decided to return to the country.
One of their recipient is Rosalina Casuga from Baguio City who had decided to leave Malaysia after working there for 6 months because according to her, the salary which was indicated in the contract which she signed was not implemented.
Ms. Rosalina B. Casuga from Upper San Carlos, Baguio City received livelihood starter kits/ grocery items for her sari-sari store business under the Balik Pinas Balik Hanapbuhay Program.
This program is a livelihood assistance intended to provide relief to returning member OFWs who were displaced from their jobs due to wars/political conflicts in host countries or were victims of illegal recruitment and/or human trafficking or other distressful situations.
On the video, she was thanking OWWA for extending assistance by funding a sari-sari store for her.
She received her starter kit livelihood assistance last June 2, 2017.
The Program aims to give support to the returning OFWs who had been victims of illegal recruitment, abused by employers, human trafficking and under distressful circumstances, displaced by hostilities or those that are trapped in war in the country where they work.
This is a good news for all OFWs. This is a way of giving another hope for them whose faith did not turn out to be successful in a foreign land.
This is also one way of making their return to the country worthwhile so they don’t need to leave their families to work abroad.
