Senator Angara urging the DSWD to quickly deploy Social Welfare Attaches to serve the OFW

Senator Juan Edgardo Angara said, we always heard and saw in the news that there's an abused suffered by OFWs. Usually, they are the victim of human trafficking. Abused by their employers, raped or sexually abused. The Social Welfare Attaches are there for psychosocial services. But the Department of Social Welfare Development is taking too long to deploy social welfare attaches.

Angara said, that President Duterte has signed the law last April of establishing the Office of the Social Welfare Attaches. And yet the government is slow in deploying Social Welfare Attaches.

And now there are seven foreign service posts with social welfare attaches, the Philippine embassies in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,  Kuwait, and Doha, Qatar; Philippine consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, and Dubai, UAE. And if the DSWD is able to deploy the five vacant posts, eight more slots for social welfare attaches can be filled up in 2020.
