OFW Center in Davao

One of our group recommendation in the Joint Resolution we are going to submit to Pres. Arroyo this coming 8 of May 2006 in line with OFW Reintegration plan is; 

*LGU participation in the OFW Reintegration program should be made mandatory.*

Today i read this important news, I am so grateful to those local leaders in our country that initiate laudable moves for the good of their OFW constituents.

My heartfelt gratitude to Davao Councilors Jimmy Dureza and Peter Lavina. Your heart belongs to OFWs. Maraming Salamat Muli!  


 Davao oks OFW Center

The likes of Manuel Amora would be happy with this news. The Davao City Council finally approved yesterday the Ordinance establishing the Davao City OFW Center.

It was first proposed by Councilor Jimmy Dureza when we opened the 14th City Council in July 2004. I started committee work on this proposal when I chaired the Committee on Labor & Employment. It was presented to the floor yesterday by our new committee head Councilor Angela Librado-Trinidad.

The Center is envisioned to become a one-stop-shop for the processing, deployment, assistance and re-integration of overseas Filipino workers from Davao City. It would work closely with national government agencies and non-government organizations like Unlad Kabayan to provide a number of services to OFWs.

A key component for the success of this Center is my proposal to devolve to local governments some of the powers, functions and resources of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).

  1. To all our OFWs:
    Here’s a new addition to Unlimited calls services available for overseas Filipinos — this one was recently developed/provided by PLDT and Cristel Telecom. Enjoy LOCAL CALLS to and from the Philippines. How? Download a Pinoy Global phone in your PC/laptop. The softphone contains your own PLDT number which you can bring anywhere in the world.
