MAGPADALA KAYO SA PAMILYA, DAHIL KUNG HINDI. . .

Posted by:

 

Dahil sa mga ulat na maraming OFW ang hindi nagpapadala sa kanilang pamilya ng pinansyal na tulong, isinusulong ngayon ni OFW Family Partylist Rep. Roy V. Seneres ang House Bill 3576 na naglalayong bigyan ng karapatan ang mga Filipino ambassadors, consul generals, chiefs of missions or charge d’affairs na manduhan ang isang OFW upang magpadala ng bahagi ng kanyang kinikita sa kaniyang pamilya sa Pilipinas.

Sa ilalim ng batas na ito, ang isang OFW ay dapat na magbigay ng kaukulang materyal, pinansyal at moral na suporta sa kaniyang mag-anak dahil kung hindi ay hindi makakapagpa-renew o approve ng bagong pasaporte ang isang OFW. Ang pagpapadala ng isang OFW ay bibigyan ng kaukulang proof of remittance ng DFA na magiging requirement upang makapagpa-renew ng pasaporte ang isang OFW.

Do you agree or not?

Calamity Victims Warned Against Illegal Recruiter

Posted by:

The POEA Admin, Hans Leo J. Cacdac yesterday warned victims of the recent earthquake and other calamities in the country to be wary of illegal recruiters who may take advantage of their condition. He said residents of areas hit hard by the earthquake in Bohol and Cebu, and by the armed infighting in Zamboanga City between a renegade faction of the Moro National Liberaton Front and government soldiers, especially those who lost their jobs and other sources of livelihood, would be the likely victims of these criminal illegal recruiters.

“These illegal recruiters are like vultures that hover in the air over potential prey”, he said.

Cacdac said the illegal recruiters would target women often promising them jobs as household service workers. The POEA chief requested local government units, law enforcement agencies, and civic organizations–the POEA’s partners in the anti-illegal
recruitment campaign in the regions–to be on the lookout for suspicious recruitment and trafficking activities in their respective localities.

He also asked applicants from the calamity areas to verify with the POEA or the provincial office of Department of Labor and Employment if the recruiter has a valid license or authorization to recruit OFWs before
accepting any job offer.
