400 OBWs in Cotabato City receive cash assistance


The Bangsamoro Ministry of Labor and Employment (MOLE) has provided cash assistance to 400 overseas Bangsamoro workers (OBWs) from 37 barangays in Cotabato City, an official said.

MOLE Minister Romeo Sema said each OBW got P20,000 during their orientation Tuesday, November 23, as beneficiaries of the MOLE’s reintegration program dubbed “Hanapbuhay for Bangsamoro Balik Mangagawa.”

“This reintegration program is a manifestation of moral governance and of our commitment to serve the people in the region. Our ministry promotes opportunities within our homeland so that the Bangsamoro people would not have to go outside the country just to find jobs,” he said.

Over 2,000 OBWs in Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) provinces are expected to receive similar aid from MOLE.
