SINGAPORE - The Philippine Embassy in Singapore through the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) conducted a Post-Arrival Orientation Seminar (PAOS) for household service workers (HSWs) who recently arrived in Singapore at the Philippine Bayanihan Centre in Pasir Panjang on February 19.

The PAOS aims to uphold the rights and protect the welfare of OFWs by giving them a comprehensive briefing on the various services that the Embassy offers, overseas absentee voting (OAV), the services they can avail of from POLO/OWWA, the repertoire of Filipino community activities that they can participate in, and information related to matters of personal security and financial literacy.

Representatives from SSS, Pag-IBIG Fund, and the private sector shared their insights on savings and investment possibilities for HSWs.

The PAOS is a regular activity that is held once every two months organized by the Philippine Embassy to help overseas Filipinos adjust to a new living and working environment. END
