The DFA will also have teams stationed at Terminals 1, 2, and 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. to likewise extend the financial assistance of P5,000.00 to stranded OFWs.
“The President has directed the DFA to prioritize the concerns of our overseas workers and in line with this, we are extending cash assistance of P5,000.00 to those who would be stranded in our airports or seaports while on their way to or from destinations abroad,” Secretary Cayetano said.
Other DFA teams will be deployed at the Mactan International Airport and at the Davao International Airport to assist stranded OFWs.
