A courier and cargo provider to the Philippines has partnered with the Philippine Consulate-General in Dubai to set up a drop box called ‘Kabayan Corner’ at the smart bus shelters in Dubai.
This will allow Filipinos to reach out to the Philippine Consulate-General with ease and convenience.
The initiative with LBC Express provides the 450,000-strong Filipino community in Dubai and the Northern Emirates an opportunity to direct their concerns to Philippine Consul-General Paul Raymund Cortes through letters or e-mails. Letters dropped in these boxes at the bus shelters and LBC branches will be delivered to the Philippine Consulate-General every week.
The initiative also extends legal aid through Gulf Law’s Atty. Barney Almazar Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) guide which can be accessed through a tablet stationed at the LBC kiosks and branches. Mark Agalo-os, vice-president for Middle East at LBC Express, said: “We are pleased to partner with the Philippine Consulate-General and Gulf Law in extending support to the UAE-based Filipinos with the launch of the ‘Kabayan Corner’ initiative. This empowers the OFWs to direct their concerns and requests to the government officials. We are proud to be part of this initiative.” More info
