3 vacationing OFWs get P50K cash prize from DoLE, OWWA

THREE lucky overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from Kuala Lumpur,  Abu Dhabi,  and Kuwait received P50,000 each during the traditional “OFW Salubong” festivities at the NAIA Terminal 1  on Wednesday.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello lll,  Undersecretary  Ciriaco Lagunzad and  OWWA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac led  the team of  government officials and OWWA personnel  in welcoming the returning/vacationing  OFWs at the NAIA.

Three other OFWs  from Taipei, Doha,  and Kuwait, received a 32- inch   television set while all arriving OFWs  were  serenaded  by a  “rondalla” and were given  tokens.

All cash prizes and tokens  were provided by the OWWA.

The OWWA team started to  greet arriving OFWs since December 19 until December 26 and five OFWs were picked at  random, each received grocery items.
   
“Although we have a simpler celebration  this year, we wish to brighten the day of our OFWs especially those who are  spending  the holiday season with their loved ones.
   
“For DoLE and OWWA, this is the most appropriate time to make the OFWs’ homecoming a day to remember  from DOLE-OWWA with love.
   
“In our small way, we wish all OFWs and their families  a blessed and bountiful  New Year,” Cacdac said.
