Moving Lives Through the Kabayan Corner Initiative

In the spirit of moving the lives, and not just the packages, of its customers, LBC in collaboration with key partners, is making an effort to give Filipino expatriates in the UAE a direct line for assistance.

Dubbed the Kabayan Corner, LBC is working with the Philippine Consulate of Dubai and Northern Emirates and Gulf Law’s Atty. Barney Almazar, the initiative creates a platform that allows Filipinos to a way to send in their concerns directly to the Philippine Consul General, Paul Raymund Cortes via a drop box. These drop boxes are available at LBC branches and Smart Shelters. It also gives them an opportunity to send in questions and queries that they may have regarding typical OFW concerns such as visa, labor laws, police cases, marriage—basically any legal concerns that they may have—via tablets provided for at designated areas.

The idea was borne after the Philippine Consul General came across the story of an OFW who lost a child after he was unable to seek assistance. He neither knew where to find the consulate nor did he know how to reach out to the right people.

From there, a collaboration between key people, including the Philippine Consulate, one of the most respected Filipino lawyers in the Gulf and the Philippines’ number one express delivery company with an expansive network was forged.

The Kabayan Corner was officially launched at LBC Smart Shelter – Al Rigga branch last September 27, 2016. Ribbon cutting led by H.E. Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes, Atty. Barney Almazar and LBC Sales & Marketing Senior Manager, Allan Michael Bautista. Event was attended by Al Shamil Foodstuff, operator of RTA Smart Shelters, Director Rohit Dalmia, friends from the media & LBC team.

“It’s important to us that we are able to lend a hand to our kababayans, especially since they are so far away from home. Abroad, with no immediate family and friends to count on, we wanted to be there in more ways than just bridging the distance between loved ones in the Philippines. We wanted to help in tangible, valuable ways,” explains Allan Bautista, Senior Sales & Marketing Manager - Middle East.
