The Philippine Overseas Labor Office-Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (POLO-OWWA) in Abu Dhabi’s latest community outreach held this weekend was met with overwhelming support from OFWs in the UAE in need of assistance in getting their papers processed by various partner government agencies.
The services rendered during the special weekend event per Labor Attache Atty. Manuel Dimaano catered to at least 200 individuals from Al Ain when they opened their doors on site.
Following Success of Recent Event in August, POLO-OWWA Abu Dhabi to Hold Another Community Outreach Next Month
According to Atty Dimaano, most of the OFWs who needed the services they offered have hectic schedules at work they need to deal with. As such, their office decided to hold the event on a weekend to reach out to them. Still, their quota was quickly filled.
With the good turnout of the weekend event, the POLO-OWWA announced that it will hold another two community outreaches for OFWs in Al Ain and Al Dhafra on September 3 and 17, respectively.
“With the support of our Philippine Ambassador to the UAE, H.E. Hjayceelyn Quintana, we sought the permission of health authorities for the conduct of these activities. We would like to remind our kababayans that preventive health measures will be in place such as physical distancing, wearing of masks, and provision of hand sanitizers in several areas within the venue as per the UAE’s guidelines,” advised Atty. Dimaano.
