CSWDO to establish OFWs help desk in barangays

THE CITY Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) aims to establish a migrant help desk to bring assistance closer to the barangays for Overseas Filipino Workers. 

In an interview, Rosevic Joey Jayme, CSWDO social welfare assistant, said the help desk, which would also accommodate families, aims to address concerns and assist communication and referral avenues for OFWs with their families. 

During the 2023 Children’s Congress held last Nov. 24 to 25, the CSWDO confirmed the challenges faced by children while their parents are working overseas. 

“Problems faced by children of OFWs include lack of parental guidance, lack of problematic living situations with their guardians, and delayed remittances,” Jayme said. 

Jayme said they seek to further strengthen awareness of the advocacy and programs for OFWs and their families for the year 2024. 

For concerns, Davaoeños may visit their office on the Fifth Floor of CSWDO Bldg., A. Pichon Street. The public can also message them on their official Facebook account or contact them at 0999 994 3577 or
