Social Welfare Attaches proposed by lawmakers to serve overseas Filipino workers for counselling. I’ve read an article about this on journal online.com. I think that I should better share this to my OFW readers.
Representatives Sherwin Tugna and Cinchona Cruz filed House Bill 5056. The two party-list lawmakers were from Citizens Battle Against Corruption (CIBAC). With their concern of increasing number of the OFWs’ the government has to act promptly on addressing the needs and problems.
Social Welfare Attaches will be stationed in all consular offices and will serve distressed OFWs’ especially those who are victims of human trafficking.
OFWs’ should salute these two honourable lawmakers for giving their valuable time and effort in addressing OFWS’ needs.
It is most likely that emotional torture has brought the most devastating effect in the lives of the overseas Filipino workers. Counselling from qualified personnel would bring back our psyche to equilibrium. This is very important to an ordinary OFW to survive in every struggle.
I just hope this House Bill will be passed into law and all OFWS’ needs will be addressed accordingly be it emotional, financial and or physical. After all 9 million OFWs’ has contributed much to the Philippine economy. It is time for the government to act upon and pay back what is due for OFWs’.
So what do you think? Support the Bill.
