OWWA Reintegration, Repatriation Programs could benefit to all OFWs who are in need of welfare assistance. Working outside the country is really a challenge to many Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).
Not only do they endure being away from their loved ones in the Philippines but they also need to work as hard as possible in order to meet the needs of their families.
On the other hand, some OFWs went back in the country without savings because of grave mistreatment they had suffered from their employers while others came back due to serious illnesses. Given these circumstances, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) created both the reintegration and repatriation programs to help out OFWs start anew.Being the government’s prime agency for overseas Filipinos, OWWA offers a wide range of benefit and service programs to its member-OFWs. This is in line with its advocacy of promoting the welfare of OFWs around the world who contribute not only to their individual families but to the national economy in general. As such, OFWs may avail the reintegration and repatriation programs provided that they had returned in the country because of distressful or emergency situations. Moreover, OWWA also requires OFWs to submit their applications along with their pertinent documents which are necessary for the immediate processing of their applications.
