What is FFWW?
FFW-W stands for the Foundation of Filipino Workers – Worldwide, an organization composed of Filipino workers working and residing outside Philippines. Created to uplift the individual growth of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). Organized and established in Doha, Qatar in 2003. Registered and recognized as a legitimate socio-civic organization by the Philippine Embassy.
For OFWs to attain proper benefits on Health, Livelihood and Entrepreneurship. To have an affordable medical check-ups and hospitalization, financial support and assistance from the financial institution, and a globally systematic approach of uplifting the human worth and growth. To enjoy a happy and meaningful retirement living as benefit of the long-striving years to support both the family and the nation.
To pursue the realization of our vision by conducting continuous sourcing of professional and experienced OFWs who shall document studies and draft proposals for approval of the concerned Philippine government agencies, that shall act on a law that will create an OFW-owned Corporation that manages an OFW-owned Bank and Hospital, and the government agencies, as per the created law, to assist and support the legalities of procurement and subsidizing property required for building the corporation, bank and hospital.
Many among our OFWs need medical services or check-ups but do not have the financial capacity. This is the reason why FFW-W planned to establish a hospital in the Philippines that shall be owned by the OFWs themselves and will provide affordable medical services to all OFWs and the public. It shall be registered and compliant for official accreditation to conduct medical examinations to departing OFWs.
LIVELIHOOD AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
The financial requirement of the hospital shall be supported and managed by the OFW-owned bank, aside from its normal financial business transactions for the OFWs and the public. We can course our remittances through our own bank for business support and to ensure that our bank could get a good share of the business in money exchange.
