Senator Christopher “Bong” Go has led the groundbreaking ceremony of the first-ever hospital made for overseas Filipino workers (OFW) in Pampanga.
KAMI learned that the senator also assured the public of his commitment to helping the OFWs and their families.
In a report by The Manila Times, Go lauded the bill to create a government department catering the needs and concerns of the OFWs.
“Masakit makitang iniiwan ng mga kababayan natin ang mga pamilya at mahal nila sa buhay upang makapagtrabaho lamang sa mga malalayong lugar. Suklian natin ang kanilang sakripisyo ng mas maayos na serbisyo para sa kanila at kanilang mga pamilya,” Go said.
“Sa tulong nitong proposed department na ito, isang lugar na lang po ang pupuntahan nila.
Mula sa paghahanap ng trabaho sa ibang bansa hanggang sa pagpo-proseso ng mga dokumento at pagrereklamo sa mga employers, diretso na po sila sa iisang tanggapan lang,” he added.
As reported by the Philippine Star, Go filed Senate Bill 202 or the Department of Overseas Filipinos Act of 2019. The proposed measure aims to create a single agency that would address the concerns and issues of OFWs.
Christopher “Bong” Go used to be the Special Assistant to the President (SAP) before he was elected as a senator. One of his pioneer projects was the “Malasakit Centers” that serve as a “one-stop-shop” for indigent patients.
