CFO sets Visayas info campaign on int'l migration and intermarriages

Cebu City (3 September) -- To protect those who are planning to migrate abroad from becoming prey to human traffickers and illegal recruiters, the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) will conduct its annual Community Education Program (CEP) in Bohol and Siquijor on September 9-16.

CFO Acting Executive Director Jennifer O. Gonzales said this education and information campaign aims to inform those who are contemplating either to work abroad or to marry foreign nationals on various issues concerning migration and intermarriages to raise their level of awareness on these issues.

Gonzales further informed this information campaign will also orient prospective migrants on government policies and programs directed against illegal recruitment, documentation fraud and human trafficking.

In an effort to reach wider audience, CFO, together with the representatives of some government agencies, is set to conduct symposia in schools, hold dialogues with non-government organizations, religious leaders and local government and community leaders in these provinces.

CFO also set to conduct press briefings and interviews with the different media outfits in these areas, Gonzales said.

Among the areas CFO will visit are Tagbilaran City and Panglao town in Bohol and Larena and Siquijor in the island province of Siquijor.

These provinces were reported to have large number of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) among the provinces in Central Visayas. (PIA 7) [top]
