OWWA delivers aid to ailing senior citizen
by Press release

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration-Cordillera provided a onetime cash relief assistance program (CARE) to a sickly senior citizen from Flora, Apayao.

OWWA delivered the money at the house of 70-year-old Serafina Malda because she could barely walk after suffering from a stroke. Serafina is the mother of Rufina Malda, an OFW in Hong Kong working as household service worker for the past six years.

The OWWA started releasing in November 2016 the financial assistance to affected Overseas Filipino Workers and families in areas hit by Typhoon Lawin, which included Cagayan, Isabela, Kallnga, Apayao, Northern Abra, and Ilocos Norte.

The financial assistance is in line with President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s instructions to Labor Sec. Silvestre H. Bello III to extend assistance to OFWs and their families who experienced the wrath of Typhoon Lawin. Under the CARE is a P3,000 cash assistance per OFW family extended to active OWWA members, while non-active members are eligible to receive P1,500 financial aid.

OWWA-CAR OIC Director Evelyn Laranang said the agency’s vision is to serve the interest and welfare of its member-OFWs and dependents. A total of 855 beneficiaries out of the 1,025 beneficiaries in Apayao were given the grant totaling to P 855,000.

OWWA has allocated P30 million for the CARE program in the Cordillera. More than 22,000 applicants from the hardest-hit provinces of Apayao, Kalinga, and Northern Abra applied for the assistance.
