Bereaved OFW dependents awarded education and livelihood assistance grant

Three parentless young siblings from Barangay Buag, Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya received aid through the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Educational Livelihood Assistance Program (ELAP) yesterday, October 27, 2020.

The surviving heirs of an OFW who recently succumbed to an illness while working abroad in Singapore were granted the amount of P10,000.00 as scholarship allowance for the first semester of school year 2020-2021 and P20,000.00 for their livelihood project on rice retailing.

The siblings have also been without a father since 2015, after the later perished due to a heart ailment. They carried on despite the personal tragedies and now have more resources to use to be able to shoot for their dreams.

The eldest, Carlyn Claire, now works as a bank teller in a banking institution in Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya after finishing with a degree in Accountancy 2 years ago. Her brother Jay Mark is now on his second year taking an information technology course while the youngest, Janelyn, is a Grade 12 student.

Their late mother also left them with a decent home and a residential lot after more than a decade of hard work abroad. The house they say will be used to help them reach their collective goals.      

Carolyn Claire, speaking in behalf of the siblings, said they are thankful for the assistance given them and optimistically mentions that the grant given will ably supplement her salary to keep themselves afloat through the pandemic.

“Makatutulong ito ng malaki sa pag-aaral ng aking mga kapatid. Mahirap man magsumikap sa mga panahong ito ng pandemya, mas nagiging maliwanag [naman] po ang mga plano naming magkakapatid dahil sa tulong ng ating gobyerno,” she added. ###
