Happy Labor Day to All Overseas Filipino Workers!
Today, Filipinos and other workers around the world are celebrating Labor Day. As a tribute to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and the Filipino workingmen in general, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will hold a groundbreaking ceremony in San Fernando, Pampanga for the first ever OFW hospital.
According to Labor Undersecretary Ana Dione, the OFW hospital will be exclusively for OFWs and their dependents to provide them with free services when securing their medical certificates, as well as covering laboratory exams and other basic requirements for their overseas deployment.
Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) donors will finance the soon-to-rise OFW hoispital, which will be administered by the Department of Health (DOH). Meanwhile, the provincial government of Pampanga donated the lot where the OFW hospital will be built. At today’s groundbreaking, OWWA will award livelihood packages worth P20,000 each to 100 OFWs under OWWA’s Balik Pinas, Balik Hanapbuhay program.
Aside from the goundbreaking of the OFW hospital, simultaneous job and business fair will be held in 29 sites across the country to mark the nationwide observance of Labor Day with the theme, “Pagpupugay sa Manggagawang Pilipino”.
To all the OFWs and Filipino workingmen, we salute you not just today, but every single day. As we celebrate Labor Day with you, we will be releasing all available job vacancies for different industries and regions weekly for the month of May.
