Department For OFWs, Duterte Promises
At a conference in Manama, Bahrain, President Rodrigo Duterte vows to create a separate department for Overseas Filipino workers.
“In a few months, you will have a department on OFW only,” the president said to the Filipino community in Bahrain.
Having a separate department, issues and other matters concerning OFWs will be addressed more efficiently.
Over the years, many OFWs have faced issues of abuse, human trafficking, and human rights violations against them. A separate department solely for OFWs will ensure better protection and welfare for the new heroes of the Philippines.
