The Philippine Overseas Labor Office Dubai and Northern Emirates announced on April 20 the suspension of the one-time financial assistance rolled out by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) for displaced OFWs affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This follows the directive from DOLE to halt the online application for the cash aid. Starting April 21, the link for the submission of applications will no longer accept responses, according to POLO Dubai.

Meanwhile, those who have pending applications and are yet to receive financial assistance will be “subject to availability of funds”.

As of April 19, POLO Dubai received 10,933 applications. Of this number, some 3004 have been evaluated.

Earlier, DOLE said in a statement that it has been swamped with volumes of requests, depleting available fund.

The labor department on April 15 also suspended the acceptance of application for financial assistance under the COVID-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP) for formal sector workers.

“Since the implementation of CAMP from March 23 to date, DOLE was able to provide the one-time P5,000 assistance to 236,412 workers from 10,663 establishments, with total cash disbursements of Php1.2 billion. We have yet to pay 85,563 more workers in the coming days.”
