Pinay Nurses Sent Off with Praises by Saudi Hospital

Posted by:

The time has come for two Pinay nurses to bid goodbye to their colleagues in a hospital in Qassim, Saudi Arabia.  But their send-off was filled with compliments and admiration from the hospital staff and fellow nurses whom they’ve known and worked with for years.

After 35 years of dedicated service both for Saudi nationals and foreigners, Pinay nurses Elercy Cruz and Zenaida Lescano will go back to the Philippines to spend time with their families.  Cruz is from Pangasinan while Lescano is from Bataan.

The two Filipina nurses were commended by Buraidah Central Hospital director Ahmad Abdullah Al-Omar who also gave them plaques of appreciation for their compassion on their jobs, whether on-duty or off-duty.

BCH assistant nursing director Edna S. Jampil said that Cruz and Lascano were doing community service on weekends, looking for medicines to be given free to fellow Filipinos who need medical help.

The Pinay nurses were also praised on how their caring attitude and selfless services have showed how good and noble their nursing profession is.  Fe M. Gatbonton, in-service control practitioner at BCH told the Arab News that the two Pinay nurses were the epitome of the model Filipino nurse.

Fellow nurses not only from BCH, but also from other hospitals, testified on how well the two Pinay nurses were, showing their compassion and keeping calm even under stressful situations.

Cruz and Lescano, will return to the Philippines to spend their retirement with their families.

BM Online: The Easiest Way OFWs can get their OECs

Posted by:

The Overseas Employment Certificate or OEC, also called the ‘exit pass’, is a requirement that needs to be presented on international ports of exit in the Philippines to prove that the person bearing it is a legitimate overseas Filipino worker or OFW.  The OEC is for any OFWs who are back to the Philippines for a vacation, and will be back again to the country where they are currently employed.

The OEC is also a requirement under the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA’s rules and regulations which would help guarantee that the OFWs are properly documented and protected. OFWs who have OECs exempt them from paying travel tax and the airport terminal fee.

OFWs that are on vacation, rehired or returning to the same employer, and those with existing record in the POEA database can use the Balik-Manggagawa  Online Processing System.  But Balik-Manggagawa’s that do not meet this criteria will be redirected to the BM Appointment page for the regular processing of OEC on the OFWS convenience, choosing their preferred date, time and processing site.

According to POEA administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac, the BM online facilitates the validation by the immigration officers at the airport of the OEC being presented by the OFW.

OFWs need to follow these steps for the BM online processing of their OECs.

  1. Go to http://bmonline.poea.gov.ph/ and register or sign up by filling up the boxes with the information needed under the “New User” category.
  2. Check the email you provided for the verification link.  OFWs must confirm the registration by logging in using the account email address and password you’ve entered.
  3. Verify your current OEC number.  Input your OEC number on the pop up box that will appear.  OFWs can also check the validity of their OEC number.  In case you don’t have with you at that moment your OEC or you can’t remember, you can just click OK and ESC to remove the pop up box.
  4. Input all the needed information.  Fill out all the box with the necessary information needed like:
  • Passport number
  • Expiration date
  • Visa number
  • Address
  • SSS number
  • PhilHealth number
  • Pag-IBIG number
  • Contact number
  • Beneficiaries
  • Employer details

5.Click the Save button.  After entering all the correct information needed, OFWs must not forget to click the save button so the BM online OEC application will be successful.

For OFWs who have applied for their OECs abroad, your OEC number will not yet be found in the BM online system.

OFWs that will use the BM Online will have to pay for the processing fee worth Php 100 and Php 19.50 for the e-payment service fee.

Jackson can’t believe that he had won, saying that he ‘almost had a heart attack upon hearing that I just won one million dollars. Never in my wildest dream did I ever imagine to win such a huge amount of money.’

 

Three more winners were announced, each winning a luxury vehicle. Joining Jackson in the latest batch of lucky winners were Ranjith C.P and Soman Narayan who both won a Porsche 911 Carera Coupe and McLaren MP4 12C Coupe, and Marques Thierry who won a Ducati Monster 1200 motorbike.

 

Jackson said that it was the second time he bought a ticket in the million-dollar promo, along with his three colleagues.
