Guidebook for OFWs to be distributed free-of-charge from June 12
A 144-page guidebook written mostly in English and covering the entire migration cycle, starting from someone’s move to the UAE until they return home, will be launched and distributed free-of-charge in the UAE among overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from June 12, which is the Philippine’s independence day.
Titled ‘The Essential OFW Guide to the UAE’, the guidebook also covers other topics such as UAE and Philippine laws, UAE Central Bank rules on loans and settling a bank loan, how the OFWs can best manage their finances as well as useful information on drinking and getting drunk, police arrests and prison.
This book is likely to be immensely useful for Filipinos who face problems at work or are debt-ridden or on the wrong side of law. A sample letter that victims can send to abusive debt collectors is also provided in the guidebook.
