    How was your request?

Dole Akap Financial Assistance

Requested from OWWA by I. Malibiran at 11:14 PM on Mar 27, 2023.
Purpose: Dole Akap Financial Assistance
Date of Coverage: 06/01/2020 - 03/27/2023
Tracking no: #OWWA-557235507632

Malibiran 11:14 PM, Mar 27, 2023

I would like to inquire if the approval of Dole Akap Financial Assistance for OFW is still on going? I have submitted my application on June 1, 2020 and have not received any feedback or updates. Tracking was not even possible as the provided link is not working at all.

I am one of those OFW who lost their job because of the above matter.

The intention of the inquiry is just to confirm if it was denied or approved but was not received.

Thank you very much.
