  • The families should be well informed of the situation of their OFW relative.

  • They should have copies of the necessary documents if in case problems arise.

  • They should have schedules when to expect calls or any sort of regular contact from said OFW.

  • The OFW in turn should not be afraid to speak when she is being abused.

  • Encourage the women to speak up and not bottle up the things happening while away.

  • Coordinate with agencies who can help conduct forums to educate the OFW and her family.

  • A pre-produced Public Service Announcement
