DOLE revs up OFW deployment to Israel after temporary stoppage

The Philippines will waste no time in sending overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to Israel following the lifting of the temporary suspension of OFW deployment to that country.

In a statement Thursday, July 15, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Silvestre Bello III noted that Israel is very much in need of care workers and other service workers since it has been slowly reopening its economy.

A total of 208 caregiver contracts have been forwarded to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) for signing and processing of documents, Bello said.
