Aside from the main embassy, you can also get help from other agencies tasked to work abroad. For example, OWWA and POLO. Both of these agencies are under the supervision of DOLE. If you have an encounter with DOLE before you go to Israel, you will see POLO and OWWA doing the same function. The only difference is that POLO works abroad while OWWA has a presence in both the Philippines and another country. If you need legal assistance or you need to be rescued from an emergency situation, you may contact the embassy or POLO so they can help you.
