A total of 6, 748 OFW - beneficiaries who availed of the Amnesty Program offered by the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia received financial assistance of Php 5,000 cash from the Regional Welfare Office – National Capital Region of the OWWA.

 

The CARE program is a one-time cash relief assistance given to OWWA Members, active or non-active, who availed of the Amnesty Program from 29 March 2017 to 23 July 2017.

 

The grant of the CARE program to the amnesty availees must be within ninety (90) days after arrival in the Philippines.

 

The program aims to aid the OFW-Amnesty availees pay their incidental expenses upon return to their families considering the difficulty they experienced of having no regular income prior to the Amnesty Program.
