Globe supports Migrant Workers Day

 Globe Telecom joined forces with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) in mounting the Migrant Workers’ Day held at the SMX Convention Center recently.

The celebration convened the migrant workers sector to the 1st National Congress of OFWs, as well as their families and dependents known as OFW Family Circles, who also enjoyed various booths, livelihood fairs and symposiums.

During the event, Globe showcased some of its flagship services for OFWs and their families such as the Globe OFW Family Pack and GCASH REMIT. The Globe OFW Family Pack comes with an OFW SIM that is ready to use abroad with a pre-activated roaming service and a Family SIM which allows family members to send text messages at P1.00 per text with access to worldwidest services. Users are also entitled to free calls to the DOLE, Philippine Overseas Employment Authority (POEA) and OWWA through the 2917 hotline, an initiative of Globe and DOLE providing OFWs free access to information on jobs, livelihood programs, and other overseas employment concerns.

Another pioneering service is GCASH REMIT, an instant over-the-counter cash pick-up service which allows OFWs and their families to send and receive money using a safe and secure platform. OFW families can pick up the money from over 18,000 accredited GCASH REMIT outlets nationwide, enabling easy, convenient, and affordable money transfer from anywhere in the world.

“Globe has always been active in lending support to the initiatives of DOLE and its attached agencies POEA and OWWA for the benefit of OFWs and their families. At the same time, we continue to provide them with innovative and relevant offers that keep them connected to each other despite being miles away,” said Richie Sison, Head for Overseas Filipino Communities and Strategic Alliances of Globe.

The event was also highlighted by the formal launching of the P1-billion reintegration program for OFWs and their families initiated by President Noynoy Aquino, which contained a manifesto that outlined the issues, concerns, and recommendations of OFWs and their families with regard to their welfare and protection.
