PIA Press Release

CFO campaign reaches Davao Oriental

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (6 August) -- Officers of the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) conducted series of awareness campaign on the realities of international migration and intermarriages in various schools and government offices in Davao Oriental.

The City of Mati and the Governor Generoso town were visited because these areas have the most number of migrants among all the other towns in the said province.

CFO officers Janet Ramos, Lance Velasco, and Cindy San Pedro took rounds in educating different sectors in the community. They held school symposium in Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy, Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology, as well as dialogues with the Philippine National Police, the Local Government Unit of Mati City, and the media.

The campaign is part of the CFO's Community Education Program (CEP) entitled " Pangingibang bansa: Handa ka na ba?"

The CEP tackled various issues concerning migration, intermarriages and existing government policies and programs directed against illegal recruitment, documentation fraud, and human trafficking, among others.

Local executives were clarified as to how they could create legislations protecting migrants as well as locals who are victims of human trafficking.

CFO is also mandated to handle human trafficking cases nationwide. Janet Ramos said that even if there is no case of human trafficking recorded in Region XI, they still received feedbacks from PNP personnel claiming that there are cases unrecorded.

This must push LGUs to seriously handle the program at the local level. (PIA) [top]
