Prioritize your Health, OFWs

Posted by:

If asked to choose between health and wealth, most Filipinos or OFWs will choose the first one. Apparently, this will be the obvious answer so as not to cause a stir and think of someone as money-minded.

 
Health, in every aspect should be the priority for everyone, especially OFWs who are working abroad. OFWs sacrifice everything just to provide better future for their family by overseas jobs. And most of the OFWs, though they’ve experienced bad experiences from foreign employers abroad, still decide to look for overseas jobs and work abroad again. This decision means taking risk in every aspect by working abroad – health, happiness, family, homesickness etc.

 
This is why Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) secretary Rosalinda Baldoz reiterated the call for OFWs not to take any risk by applying or entertaining employment or job offers from Ebola-hit countries like Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. She further said that the deployment ban for these countries still exists, and OFWs paper will not be legally processed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA for them to be sent to work abroad.

 
The announcement was made by DOLE secretary amidst report stating that there was a high demand for healthcare workers for deployment on the West African countries to aid the increasing number of patients with Ebola virus.

 
The total ban deployment was enforced by POEA last month as part of the preventive measure for OFWs to avoid being infected with deadly Ebola virus disease.

 
Also, a total deployment ban was imposed for newly-hired OFWs last July when the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) issued crisis alert level 2 on the three countries because of Ebola virus spreading.

 
This total deployment ban ordered by POEA includes the processing and deployment of returning OFWs even if they have existing employment contract in the Ebola-hit countries.

 
Filipinos, especially OFWs, should heed the call not to apply for overseas jobs in the West African countries greatly affected by the Ebola virus. You all have one goal, to earn much money for the family, but it would be useful if you’ll be infected by this alarming deadly disease that had claimed thousands of lives.
