OWWA Region 6 joins Migrant Workers’ Day celebration in Negros Occidental

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration Regional Welfare Office (OWWA RWO) 6 joined the 2017 Migrant Workers’ Day event at Talisay City last June 19, 2017.

 

The celebration, held in acknowledgement of Republic Act 8042 or the Migrant Workers Act of 1995, aims to recognize the “significant contributions” made by the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to the country.

 

Entertainment in the forms of performances from local OFW Family Circle members and raffle draws were held during the half-day event.

 

This is the second such celebration held in Region 6 this June, with the first one having been held at Iloilo City last June 7, 2017.
