Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas receives a Certificate of Recognition from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA)
Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas receives a Certificate of Recognition from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) for his dedicated assistance to returning Overseas Filipinos (OFs) to Benguet and to the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR); for his timely response of establishing the Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facility I in Wangal, La Trinidad for repatriated OFs and their dependents; and for his generosity of mobilizing resources from the local government and other agencies for repatriated OFs under the Uwian Na Program.
In 2020 when the CoVID-19 began and lockdowns were imposed, Gov. Diclas immediately mobilized the Hatid-Sundo operation of the Provincial LGU to assist returning overseas Filipinos who were greatly affected by the CoVID-19 restrictions and strict protocols. A quarantine facility was also established in Wangal, La Trinidad.
