More than 1M pandemic-affected OFWs are helped by OWWA.

Since the commencement of the epidemic two years ago, the government has provided assistance to almost 1 million overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who have been displaced by coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), according to a report released on Friday by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).

1,030,344 repatriated OFWs received support from OWWA between May 2020 and July 6, 2022, according to OWWA director Hans Leo Cacdac’s Facebook post.

The OWWA provides food, lodging during quarantine, and transportation in connection with Covid-19.

When the pandemic was at its worst, the government helped OFWs who had returned to the nation remain in quarantine hotels until they tested negative for COVID-19.

In addition to providing food, they also give out medicines and essential goods.

The troubled OFWs will be flown, shipped, or driven back to their home provinces once the illness has been eradicated.

The Department of Labor and Employment’s Abot-Kamay ang Pagtulong (AKAP) program also offers the affected Filipinos monetary assistance in the amount of PHP10,000 ($200). (DOLE).
