CALASIAO – In pursuit of helping not only the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) but even the Filipinos residing abroad, a local Council is bent on pursuing an OFW mapping project.
Alex Ferrer, chief of the Public Employment Services Office (PESO) of Pangasinan said the OF/W mapping project is being pursued by the Pangasinan Migration and Development Council (PMDC).
Ferrer said the PMDC, which he Chairs, has been helping a lot of distressed OFWs and their families. The OF/W is purposely written with a slash because it aims to cater not only to OFWs but also to overseas Filipinos (OF) who are residing abroad.
“With the OF/W mapping project, malalaman natin kung saan sila banda, anong work nila at matutulungan natin sila bago umalls sa Pilipinas, habang andun sa ibang bansa at maging sa kanilang oag-uwi,” Ferrer said during the first anniversary celebration of the Department of Foreign Affairs in Calasiao town.
Ferrer said the provincial government led by Gov. Amado Espino III is appreciative of the efforts of the PMDC. (VHS/PIA-Pangasinan)
