    ofw ako from dubai. member din ng owwa. na stroke ako last feb 16 2012 at na confine sa rashid hospital ng 1 week. pumayag nman employer ko na makauwi pero sa akin ang kalahati ng airfare. wla rin bayad sa sick leave. dumating ako march 05,2012 at nag inquire agad sa sss, philhealth at owwa. sa tatlong ahensya, sa owwa ako nkatanggap ng negatibong sagot. di daw covered ng benefis ang kaso ko which is disability thru natural cause. disability thru accident lng daw kino cover nila. tama po ba yun? nasan po ung “overseas workers welfare” na sinasabi?

      Magandang araw sa iyo, Jinky. Sorry late na ang reply namin, OFW din kami at may mga priorities na inaasikaso. On the other hand,we are praying sa immediate recovery ng father mo at naasikaso niyo na din ang inyong request sa pamamagitan ng tulong ng OWWA. Maari niyo din e-follow up sa Nesma Company na ipadala ang mga personal belongings ng iyong ama. Maki-usap kayo at maayos naman kausap ang mga Arabo hinggil sa usaping ito. May puso naman sila basta maki-usap ng maayos. Ang aming maipapayo din, makipag-ugnayan kayo sa malapit na owwa office at idulog ninyo ang condition ng iyong ama at ano ang maitutulong nila. Naway sa maliit na paraan nabigyan namin kayo ng payo. God bless sa inyo.

    I am an OFW for 16 years and I was an OWWA member for 12 years but then I discontinued for I find that this OWWA has no benefits to me being a single person not unless I’m dead. I felt the pain of paying this OWWA for that long. For those OFW’s, I recommend SSS and Philhealth because the amount we paid is worth paying for. For me, OWWA is not worth to be a mandatory or compulsory to all OFW’s.

    Maganda ang programa ng OWWA sa mga OFW natin, alaga sila at inaasikaso. Pero paano naman kung ang isang OFW ang nang-api dito sa Pilipinas. Gaya ng nan-buntis, inanakan ang isang babae, tapos hindi magbibigay ng sustento. May disiplinary action din bang gagawin ang OWWA para mabigay ang karapatan ng bata? Si OFW siya pa nag-register sa munisipyo na isunod sa surname niya sa bata. Sana mabigyan linaw ninyo ang katanongan ko. Salamat po.
