How OFWs May Benefit from OWWA Reintegration, Repatriation Programs

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. 

OWWA Repatriation

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. 

Qualified OFWs may choose programs component

Under the OWWA Reintegration Program, qualified OFWs may choose either of the program’s two components. First is the psycho-social component in which OWWA provides a series of counseling sessions to OFWs and families in order for them to recuperate from what had happened to their OFW family member. OFWs may also select the program’s economic component wherein they will undergo entrepreneurial skills trainings. In addition, they can also borrow capital for their new businesses from the OWWA-NLSF Livelihood Program or the OFW Groceria Project. However, interested OFWs must comply with the OWWA loan requirements before their applications will be processed.

The OWWA Repatriation Program

On the other hand, the OWWA Repatriation Program may be availed by previous OFWs who are distressed because of serious mistreatment they had suffered from their former foreign employers. It also provides various sorts of assistance such as airport fares, temporary shelter, domestic transportation, etc. Moreover, this program is also applicable to both alive and dead OFWs who are victims of work-related accidents in the country where they had worked in. All these and other OWWA programs are government-sponsored with auspices from other non-government organizations (NGOs) that also care for the welfare of OFWs who are considered as modern-day heroes.

    1. Magandang araw sa iyo kabayang Grace,



      Pasensiya na po at ngayon lang kami nakapag reply sa inyo. Kami ay OFW din at sobrang naapektuhan sa pandemya dito sa abroad pero hindi po tayo susuko sa hamon.

Hinggil sa iyong katanungan, ang laging advice ng OWWA ay makipag ugnayan tayo sa Regional office na kung saang office na malapit tayo. Isang kasamahan namin , nag inquire sa head office sa Pasay at redirect sya sa Regional office. Ang pinakamaganda niyo pong gawin ay hanapin niyo po dito ang address kung saang regional office kayo malapit sa inyong lugar at updated naman po ang address nila. Klik niyo po dito https://www.owwabenefits.com/owwa-regional-offices/

      
Habang hinihintay niyo po ang tugon nila, pwede niyo din po itong sagutan. Sample form po ito na ang OWWA – Regional Office ninyo ay magbibigay ng official na form para may ideya kayo.

      Sample form: https://www.owwabenefits.com/balik-pinas-balik-hanapbuhay-program-application-form-online/

      Sa form na ito, hinihingi ng OWWA Regional Welfare Offices (RWOs) ang iyong datos tungkol sa inyo bilang aplikante/OFW .


      

Para sa kaalaman ng lahat na ang sample form na ito ay hindi opisyal at kailangan niyong humingi sa OWWA Regional Office na kung saan kayo mag avail ng programang Balik Pinas – Balik Hanap Buhay Program.

Sana sa maliit na paraan na ito, makakatulong sa pagpapalakad ng iyong application. Laban lang tayo. 



      Maraming salamat at God bless.
