POEA Cancels Recruiter’s License Over Excessive Placement Fee

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac has ordered the cancellation of license of Goodman International Manpower which was found to have collected exorbitant placement fee from an OFW who worked as a manicurist in Singapore.

The complainant against Goodman International alleged that an employee of the recruitment agency required her to pay Php40,000 as partial placement fee. She paid the amount from the proceeds of a Php147,000.00 loan she obtained from a lending company. The rest of the money went to Goodman’s counterpart agency in Singapore.

The worker further testified that Goodman did not issue her a receipt corresponding her payment and she was deployed to Singapore using a tourist visa. She resigned from her work after only three weeks.

Aside from cancellation of license for violation of the POEA rule on placement fee, Cacdac meted Goodman International the penalty of nine months suspension of license or a fine of Php450,000.00 each for collecting placement fee without issuing a receipt, misrepresentation, and deploying workers whose employment and travel documents were not processed by the POEA.

Cacdac also ordered the disqualification of the officers and directors of the agency from participating in the business of recruitment and placement of overseas Filipino workers.

3 POEA Recruitment Agencies Suspended For Human Trafficking

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac ordered the preventive suspension of Empleos Incorporated, Nahed International Manpower Services, and Ridzkey Human Resources International Services , which were found to have illegally deployed Filipino workers to Jordan using Dubai, United Arab Emirates as transit point. 

Cacdac said the three agencies used the same scheme of having the documents of the OFWs processed at the POEA for work in the UAE , but upon arrival in Dubai, the workers are transferred to planes bound for Jordan. 

Cacdac said the POEA motu propio filed administrative complaints against the three agencies after receiving memo s from the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Jordan re quest ing assistance for immediate repatriation of OFWs deployed by the agencies. The workers ran away from their respective employers and are currently staying at the Filipino Workers Resource Center in Amman.

"The scheme employed by the respondents is a prima facie case of trafficking - in - persons considering the fact that the workers were officially processed for UAE but the y were deployed instead to employers in Jordan that are not accredited or registered with the POEA,"

Cacdac said in his order. The recruitment agencies also failed to immediately repatriate the affected workers even with persistent requests for repatriation from the POEA and the workers themselves. Cacdac said he issued the order of preventive suspension against the three agencies because there are reasonable grounds to believe that the ir continued operation will lead to further violation of POEA rules and regulations , and exploitation of applicants for overseas jobs . Cacdac also ordered the inclusion of the names of the respondents in the POEA list of agencies temporarily disqualified to recruit and deploy Filipino overseas workers pending investigation of the cases filed against them.

Balik Manggawa Online Processing

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration advised Balik - Manggagawa or vacationing Overseas Filipino Workers to use its online system to get an Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) or exit clearance instead of lining up at the POEA office and its processing centers.

Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said BM Online or the Balik - Manggagawa Online Processing, which will be officially launched October 16 , is intended not only to get rid of queues but also to speed up the process at the convenience of vacationing OFWs.

“With the new system, a returning OFW can now apply online for the OEC and have the approved OEC printed by him/her anywhere , anytime. With the existing database sharing with the Bureau of Immigration , the updated information of OFWs who have successfully secured their OEC using the system will be automatically shared with the Bureau . This facilitates the validation by the immigration officers at the airport of the OEC being presented by the bearer,” Cacdac said.

Cacdac said BM Online is available only for workers on vacation, rehired, or returning to the same employer, and with exi sting record in the POEA database. A Balik - Manggagawa or returning worker who does not meet the said criteria will be redirected to the BM Appointment page for regular processing of OEC on a chosen date and time and preferred processing site of the worker.

Workers using the system will have to pay Php100 for processing fee and Php19.50 for e - payment service fee. The system is now available at and can likewise be accessed through the POEA website.

POEA Padlocks Travel Agency For Illegal Recruitment Charge

Operatives of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration and members of the Marikina City Police last week closed down a travel agency allegedly involved in the recruitment of Filipino workers for overseas jobs.

Deputy Administrator Amuerfina R. Reyes, POEA officer-in-charge, identified the travel office as Jamea and Angels Travel Consultancy Services located at 2nd floor, Tancy Building, Barangay Molino, Parang, Marikina City which is owned and operated by a certain Jamea Lawas Barreon.

The POEA operatives reported that they have gathered evidence that Ms. Barreon was recruiting OFWs for overseas jobs. The officers found passports and resume of applicants on the tables, and lists of job vacancies for Korea, Canada, Israel, Japan and New Zealand and framed photos of applicants “scheduled to depart” posted on the office walls.

Travel agencies are not allowed to recruit and deploy Filipino overseas workers.  Under Republic Act No. 8042, as amended by Republic Act No. 10022, any act of hiring Filipino workers when undertaken by one without license or authority from the POEA is considered illegal recruitment.

When interviewed, Barreon readily admitted that she was recruiting overseas workers with the help of a certain “Christian Benito” whom she alleged to be an employee of the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Reyes said the POEA is preparing charges of illegal recruitment against Barreon and her office staff Julietta Balcruz Capistrano, and their names will be included in the POEA’s List of Persons with Derogatory Record.

DFA Appeals To OFWs In Libya To Return Home Immediately

The Department of Foreign Affairs strongly reiterates its call to all Filipino nationals in Libya to return home as soon as possible.

DFA in a statement said Alert Level 4 has been raised due to the latest security developments in Libya, the increasing violence and lawlessness, the closure of major airports, the heightened security threat to Filipinos, particularly in Benghazi, where a Filipino worker was kidnapped on July 15 and  was confirmed dead Saturday.

These events indicate that it is no longer safe for our OFWs to remain in Libya, DFA reiterates and asks OFWs that for their own safety to immediately contact the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli to register for repatriation.

Since the start of the crisis, DFA said it has continuously monitored the security developments in Libya while remaining sensitive to the needs of overseas Filipino workers in that country.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert F. del Rosario headed to Libya on May 28 to personally assess the situation on the ground. The DFA subsequently raised the Alert Level to 3 (Voluntary Repatriation) on May 29 due to the political and security instability there. A Rapid Response Team, as well as an augmentation team from the DFA, were also sent shortly to Libya to assist the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli in the repatriation efforts.

The Philippine Embassy in Tripoli reached out to the Filipino community and to employers in Libya to brief them on the situation and inform them of DFA’s responses to the crisis. Embassy officers made representations with employers to promote the labor interests of OFWs and obtain employers’ cooperation to ensure their safety.

The DFA also put up 24-hour hotlines for families of OFWs in Libya. Those who have questions and concerns about the conditions of their relatives in Libya can call the hotline numbers (02) 552-7105 / (02) 834-4685. Families may also send their queries by e-mail to

To register for repatriation, OFWs in Libya can directly get in touch with the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli. The Embassy's address is KM 7 Gargaresh Road, Abu Nawas, P.O. Box 12508, Tripoli. Filipinos can contact the Embassy through the telephone numbers (00218) 918-244-208 / (00218) 911061166, and the e-mail addresses;

Top Ten Ways to Avoid Illegal Recruitment in Working Abroad

The majority of the Filipino workforce dreamed of working abroad.  That is why many Filipinos are giving up a lot of their resources or assets just to work abroad.  However many are also taking advantage of aspiring Overseas Filipinos Workers (OFW) and trying to make a quick buck from them.

This article will explain how aspiring Overseas Filipino Workers can avoid illegal recruitment and saved their money from being handed over to the wrong people.

1. Apply only to recruitment agencies that are licensed or accredited by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).  Not all recruitment agencies in the Philippines are allowed to deploy Filipinos abroad, a recruitment agency needs to comply with the requirements set by the POEA such as the escrow account, business licenses, etc.  

2.  Deal only with licensed agencies with valid job orders.     

3. Conduct business only with persons who is an authorized representative of a licensed agency.  One of the policy of POEA for the licensed recruitment agency is for them to register their employees with the POEA.  

4.  Transact business within the registered address of the agency. Whenever recruitment is conducted in the province, check if the agency has a provincial recruitment authority.     

5.  Pay not more than the allowed placement fee. It should be equivalent to one month salary, exclusive of documentation and processing costs.   

6.  Do not pay any placement fee unless you have a valid employment contract and an official receipt.  The official receipt will serve as an evidence just in case the OFW wishes to file a case against the Philippine Recruitment Agency.

7.   Do not be enticed by ads or brochures requiring you to reply to unknown address such as a Post Office (P.O.) Box.  Furthermore do not enclose or send payment for processing of papers to an unverified person or entity.

8.   Do not deal with training centers and travel agencies, which promise overseas employment.  Take note that travel agencies and training centers are not allowed to recruit aspiring Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW).  

9.   Do not accept a tourist visa.

10.  Don't deal with fixers.

Remembering these points on how an aspiring Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) can avoid illegal recruitment can save the jobseeker's hard earned money from persons taking advantage of the jobseeker's endeavor in working abroad.

Total Deployment Ban Imposed On All OFWs Bound For Afghanistan

Secretary of Labor and Employment Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz  announced that the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) Governing Board (GB) has ordered a total ban on the processing and deployment of all returning/vacationing overseas Filipino workers bound for Afghanistan, following the Department of Foreign Affairs’ (DFA) issuance of Crisis Alert Level 3 (Voluntary Repatriation Phase) for Afghanistan, which has been experiencing tension following the conduct of the Presidential Elections held last 14 June 2014.

Governing Board Resolution No. 15, Series of 2014, was signed by DOLE Secretary and POEA GB Chairman Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz, POEA Administrator and Vice-Chair of the Governing Board Hans Leo J. Cacdac, and members Felix M. Oca, Estrelita S. Hizon, Alexander E. Asuncion, and Milagros Isabel A. Cristobal.

The deployment ban on new hires for Afghanistan provided under Governing Board Resolution No. 8 issued on 17 December 2007 is still in effect.

In a letter to Baldoz, Secretary of Foreign Affairs Albert E. Del Rosario stated that Alert Level 3 is issued when violent disturbances or external aggression occur in a limited area.

"Filipinos are enjoined to return to the country. However, the cost of repatriation must be borne by their respective companies," Secretary Del Rosario stated in his letter.

The Philippine Embassy in Islamabad estimated that there are around 5,250 Filipinos in Afghanistan mostly working for US contractors. POEA records in 2013 reveal that they are mostly composed of production supervisor and general foremen, production workers, machine fitters and assemblers, stock clerks, engineers, transport equipment operators, electrical wiremen and electrical and electronics engineering technicians.

Despite incidents of violence, the Presidential Elections of Afghanistan pushed through on June 14, 2014 with around 7 million people voting. There were reportedly 150 attacks which killed 10 Afghan soldiers, 14 civilians, and 19 insurgents and injured many more.

Baldoz said that OFW-repatriates who expressed preference to go back overseas in countries other than their original deployment destination can avail of the government’s employment facilitation service provided by the POEA’s Manpower Registry Division, located at the ground floor of the POEA Building and headed by officer-in-charge Cora Orticio. They can be reached through telephone numbers (02) 722-1172; 722-1176; and 722-9497.

She further said that the POEA’s manpower registry division will provide the information on POEA-approved job orders, countries of destination, licensed recruitment agencies, job position, and salaries so that the OFWs can compare and choose which countries they would like to work again in a similar position with more or less similar pay and other benefits.

The added that administrator Cacdac is also setting up a desk at the POEA with a staff complement to provide re-employment facilitation services, as well as relevant information, to repatriates.

“I have instructed Administrator Cacdac to disclose all relevant market information to the public every time the POEA issues a ban on deployment so that OFW returnees can make wise and rational decisions about their plans. These labor market information includes occupations, skills, and wages in the country and in alternative destinations for those seeking employment or re-employment, as well as employment prospects or labor market analysis that includes information on deployment process and cost, visa information, and market players, or local and foreign placement agencies,” said Baldoz.

OFW-repatriates with money claims and other legal problems are attended to by the legal assistance division (LAD) under the Anti-Illegal Recruitment Branch headed by Atty. Rose Duquez. The LAD is located at the fourth floor of the POEA Building along Ortigas Avenue in Mandaluyong City and can be reached through telephone numbers (02) 722-1189.

Immigration Staff Sentenced To Life Imprisonment For Illegal Recruitment

Two employees of an immigration consultancy firm were sentenced to life imprisonment for illegal recruitment in large scale by the Regional Trial Court of Baguio City.

In a Decision, Judge Rose Mary R. Molina-Alim of RTC Branch 3 Baguio City found the two accused, Rodolfo A. Domingo Jr. and Roliza S. Batag, guilty of engaging in the recruitment of overseas Filipino workers without the proper authorization from the POEA.

Domingo and Bantag were employees of Global Consultancy Management Services located at 117 Cresencia Village, Baguio City.

41 complainants, most of them from Baguio City, alleged that the two employees collected from them placement fees amounting to PhP35,000 up to PhP170,000 in consideration of the promised employment as domestic helpers for Canada; butchers, factory workers and civil engineers for Australia; and electronic technicians for South Korea with salaries ranging from PhP60,000 to

Under Republic Act No. 8042 as amended by Republic Act No. 10022, offering overseas employment in the guise of visa assistance without the necessary license or authority from the POEA constitutes illegal recruitment.

OFWs advised to take precautionary measures vs MERS-CoV

Vice President and Presidential Adviser for Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) concerns Jejomar C. Binay called Filipinos in the Middle East to take precautionary measures against the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome- Corona Virus (MERS-CoV).

“I urge our OFWs in the Middle East to follow the steps prescribed by the DOH. These are easy enough and should go a long way in preventing infection,” Binay said.

The Vice President also urged Filipinos in the region not to panic and confirm reports about the virus with Philippine officials in their area.

“The World Health Organization (WHO) has not yet declared that there is a MERS-CoV outbreak or epidemic, so there is no cause for panic. If rumors start to circulate, the best thing to do is to ask your respective embassies or consulates,” he added.

According to the WHO, the virus appears to be circulating widely throughout the Arabian Peninsula. Other countries outside the Arabian Peninsula that have reported cases of MERS include France, Germany, Greece, Italy, and the United Kingdom (Europe); Tunisia and Egypt (Africa); Malaysia and the Philippines (Asia); and in the United States of America.

The number of confirmed cases worldwide is recorded at 243, including three deaths. (OVP/WHO/RJB/JEG/PIA-NCR)

Placement Agency Faces Suspension for Overcharging of Placement Fees

A placement agency faces suspension after an overseas Filipino worker it deployed to Hong Kong suffered several abuses at the hands of her employer.

The Department of Labor and Employment said this as its agencies reassured the OFW, Rowena Uychiat, of assistance to her and her family in the Philippines.

DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz assured Uychiat's family the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration and the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Hong Kong will help her file a complaint against NAR Training and Management Service for making Uychiat pay P45,000 in placement fee.

Baldoz also directed the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration to file a case against a certain Joy of NAR Training and Management Service for deducting P5,000 from the loan proceeds allegedly as processing fee.

On the other hand, the DOLE is also eyeing actions against Nittan Capital Finance Inc., where Uychiat contracted a P50,000 loan to pay the placement fee.

Earlier, Philippine Labor Attache to Hong Kong Manuel Roldan said the POLO has blacklisted Uychiat's employer, Yui Anna Hoi Yin.

"This means Yui Anna Hoi Yin cannot hire another worker unless police investigation shows otherwise. The POLO will not process any contract document which the employer will present as a pre-requisite to visa issuance," Roldan said.

Uychiat, a widow, has a 19-year old daughter Justine, who is taking up criminology at Bago City College. She also has a 13-year old son, Ryan

P10K Livelihood Assistance For Overseas Filipino Workers In WV

Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Western Visayas who applied for the P10K livelihood Assistance Program of the National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO) can now claim their checks at the provincial offices of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in their respective areas.

Bernard Sibay, Regional OFW Integration Officer of NCRO here in Region 6 said 45 applications for the P10K livelihood Assistance Program have been approved amounting to P450,000.00 and the checks are now downloaded to the DOLE provincial offices for release.

To date, 19 beneficiaries have already claimed their checks of which five received theirs from DOLE Undersecretary Ciriaco Lagunzad during his recent visit to Iloilo City.

Based on the NRCO 6 data, OFWs from the province of Negros Occidental whose applications were approved and have to claim their checks yet are: Ramile Combite, Ressia Bentic, Richard Bautista, Mark Ermeo, Ronabe Mancia, Maritess Atido, Cherryl Anatan, Rodelyn Jane Morales, Maritess Tipon, Susie Espina and Lolita Bacharo.

In the province of Iloilo, approved applicants who also have to claim their checks are: Connie Chavez, Wilma Cataloctocan, Mary Jane Jegonia, Daisy Matrata and Rey Anthony Mosquito.

The following OFWs are also advised to visit their respective DOLE provincial offices: Mary Ann de la Cruz, Imelda Andrade, Rosy Obidos and Nancy Ramirez of Capiz; Presy Maravilla, Josephine Olegario, Mary Jean Mombay; Roberto Amboyoc and Jeffrey Samillano, of Antique; and Meljane Cabanero of Guimaras.

For OFW beneficiaries who are now in Manila or in other areas, Sibay said, they have to execute a special power of attorney that authorizes their representatives to claim their checks on their behalf.

Under the P10K Livelihood Assistance Program, OFW returnees who are distressed, displaced, undocumented including their immediate families and dependents can avail of the assistance for them to start or enhance their existing livelihood undertakings and eventually become self sufficient.

Sibay said if beneficiaries manage their businesses well they could also avail additional development support from the P2 Billion Reintegration Program, a special loan program launched by President Benigno Aquino and implemented by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration in partnership with Development Bank of the Philippines and the Land Bank of the Philippines.

DOH cites OFW for heeding MERS-CoV alert

The Department of Health-6 said the OFW from Jeddah Saudi Arabia who sought consultation here after feeling feverish is a model for others in heeding the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome-Corona Virus (MERS-CoV) alert.

Dr. Glen Alonsabe, DOH regional epidemiologist, said that the OFW, a female nurse, went to the Iloilo Doctors’ Hospital and later was placed on quarantine in government facility at the Western Visayas Medical Center for swab tests to be confirmed by the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, in two or three days.

Alonsabe said in a radio interview that the nurse was recently declared negative of the virus, as confirmed in the results of the swab test.

“The feverish feeling may be due to changes in the weather,” Alonsabe opined.

Earlier, Alonsabe appealed to the public to stop MERS-CoV scare through circulation of unverified text messages which followed news of the OFW’s seeking consultation.

He warned that rumors could harm a person’s reputation, so the DOH is working to verify all information, and is open to queries.

“So far, there is no confirmed positive case of MERS-CoV in Western Visayas, but this should not leave us complacent,” Alonsave said.

He added that all Ilonggo passengers of Etihad Airlines flight EY 0424 that arrived in the country on April 15, were negative for the virus.

MERS-CoV is a communicable disease which may be passed on to another through close contact with a person tested positive.

Other than fever, the symptoms may include coughing, sneezing, and runny nose after two weeks of exposure.

DOH still recommends personal hygiene, hand washing and covering of mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing. (ESS/PIA-Iloilo)

Former OFW beheads own mother in Iloilo

A former overseas Filipino worker beheaded his own mother while suffering a nervous breakdown in Iloilo province, a radio report said Thursday.

The incident occurred in Barangay Bonbon in Lambunao town in Iloilo, Bombo Radyo reported.

Barangay chairman Rolando Araceli was quoted in the report as saying the suspect, whose name his relatives withheld, attacked his mother Erlinda Liderato, 65.

He described the suspect as kind and obedient before the breakdown, adding the suspect even worked abroad.

Liderato's body was found outside her house, with the severed head placed on top of it.

An initial investigation showed that before Liderato's remains were found, the suspect hacked her on the shoulder but she managed to get out of the house to call for help.

When the suspect's sister arrived later, she saw blood on the suspect's short pants and called local barangay officials for help.

The suspect was confined in his hut and authorities are making arrangements to bring him to a mental hospital.

OWWA Aids OFW in Bontoc Bus Mishap

Baguio City – The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) extended aid to a former Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) in Cyprus who was left permanently disabled due to the Bontoc bus tragedy.

OWWA Administrator Carmelita Dimzon said the victim, Olivia Aglipay, was given P100,000 assistance for her permanent disability Friday afternoon.

Dimzon said Aglipay is an active member of the OWWA and is entitled to disability claim from injuries arising from the accident.

Aglipay arrived in the country last February 5 after finishing her two-year contract in Cyprus. She was bound for their town in Mountain Province on February 7 when the ill-fated GV Florida bus fell off a ravine claiming the lives of 16 people out of 47 passengers.

Aglipay arrived in the country last February 5 after finishing her two-year contract in Cyprus. She was bound for their town in Mountain Province on February 7 when the ill-fated GV Florida bus fell off a ravine claiming the lives of 16 people out of 47 passengers.

Aglipay, who was hospitalized for more than a month, underwent several operations due to severe spinal injuries and fractures which resulted to her being bedridden.

She is now undergoing physical therapy sessions where the disability assistance will be used for her continuing treatment and medications.

The bus accident victim told OWWA that her savings in Cyprus were all used up during her hospitalization despite a cash grant and coverage of hospitalization by the bus company which, according to her relatives, is not even enough for her other needs and maintenance medicines.

Dimzon added the agency will find means to help distressed OFWs especially their active members and their families.

The OWWA administrator was in this city Friday to attend reception and congratulatory rites for the agency’s scholars.

OWWA regional director Manuela Peña said the agency heeded the advice of police investigators in the accident for government agencies to give assistance to victims. – Solar News, with a report from JM Agreda

DOLE Chief Orders Full Support to OFWs

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz has asked all regional directors of umbrella agency, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), to give full support to overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), both active and inactive.

In her statement during the launching of the regional programs and projects last week, Secretary Baldoz said, “OWWA regional offices should have a profile of all active and inactive members for livelihood assistance and cash for work and it should be available if the members need it.”

Baldoz said there are funds that are intended for OFW support both from the national government and the employers’ contribution that go to the OWWA Trust fund.

Aside from the OWWA trust fund, the national government is also setting aside P50 million for our OFWs under the National Reintegration Fund. This is for the victims of maltreatment abroad who have come home and decided to work here permanently.

“They should be given alternative employment and livelihood here,” the secretary emphasized.

Baldoz added that the program also includes scholarships for the children of OFWs. She, however, said that active OFWs can also avail themselves of work-related insurance.

“Active and inactive OFWs can avail of all our programs except that only active members can avail of insurance since insurance is connected with their being active workers,” she explained.

Baldoz has also asked OWWA-9 Regional Director Hassan Gabra Jumdain to submit a separate report if there are OWWA members that are victims of the September 2013 MNLF-Misuari Group attack in the city.

“I want a separate report if there are members who are victims of the recent crisis in Zamboanga City and what are the assistance extended to them,” she stressed. (FPG/MVC/PIA9-ZBST)

Baldoz to DOLE regional directors: Fast-track release of livelihood budget to survivors of calamity

Secretary of Labor and Employment Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz  ordered all DOLE regional directors and program managers to fast-track the release of DOLE Integrated Livelihood Assistance Program (DILP) funds in order to enable survivors to earn decent incomes and quickly recover from the effects of the calamities.

“My instruction during our DOLE-wide planning exercise was to already roll out in the first month of 2014 the DILP funds given us by Congress, either for our regular programs or for rebuilding after Typhoon Yolanda. February is almost over, and March is coming, so I expect that our livelihood assistance to calamity survivors will already be making headway,” said Baldoz , as she expressed concern over the seemingly snail-paced move of program managers to implement programs, DOLE said in  statement.

Baldoz said the DOLE targets 100,000 emergency and livelihood program beneficiaries this 2014 under a regular budget of P609.8 million and 102,011 beneficiaries under Yolanda projects with a budget of P883.98 million for the full year. “We have targets to meet, or even surpass, so we better be prepared and be fast,” she said.

Baldoz, who is in Bohol as keynote speaker in the 2nd Visayas Regional Occupational Safety and Health Summit, said all DOLE regional directors have the responsibility–and are accountable to her–for the implementation of the DILP in convergence with the Departments of Agrarian Reform; Agriculture, Interior and Local Governments; Science and Technology; Environment and Natural Resources; Trade and Industry; Social Welfare and Development; local government units, and other partners.

Baldoz observed that the DOLE Regional Office No. 7 had only released in Bohol Province in January and February P1.159 million in livelihood grants to eight workers’ livelihood enterprises with total beneficiaries of 487 individuals.

In January, the regional office released a total of P425,000 in DILP grants to the Lila Fish Vendors’ Association in Lila, Bohol, for the fish vending activities of its 77 members–55 of whom are female, in the amount of P80,500; Bungahan Farmers Association in Antequera, Bohol, for the duck raising and balut processing business of its 85 farmer-members, 27 of whom are female, in the amount of P114,000; Barangay Livestock Aide, also in Antequera, Bohol, for the duck raising and balut processing business of its 40 members, five of whom are female, in the amount of P114,000; Casabut Organic Farming System in Barangays Cabawan, Agahay, San Roque, Aliguay, Busao, and Toril in Maribojoc, Bohol, for training-cum-production on chorizo and tocino; dress-making; and cassava chips making, of its 21 female members in the amount of P177,000.

At the summit, Baldoz, joined by Bohol Governor Edgar M. Chatto and Regional Director Chona Mantilla, released the amount of P732,152.40 for the livelihood enterprises of 285 individuals, detailed as follows: (1) P269,402 to the Gotozon Balsa Performers’ Association, Loboc, Bohol, whose 92 members are engaged in tourist entertainment. The amount is for rehabilitation of their floating raft destroyed by the Bohol earthquake.

Secretary Baldoz and Gov. Chatto also handed out a check of P118,400 to the Anda Senior Citizens Association, Poblacion, Anda, Bohol, for its 76 members’ goat-raising business; P106,500 to the Lundag Farmers Association, in Anda, Bohol, for its dairy goat-raising business. The association has 37 members, 33 males and four females; P100,000 to the Anda OFW Returnees and Beneficiaries Association for its malunggay kropek business, with 41 beneficiaries, 15 of whom are male and 26 are female; and P137,850 to the Baucan Norte Farmers Association, in  Balilihan, Bohol, for its dairy goat-raising enterprise. The association has 39 members, 25 of whom are male and 14 are female.(
