It is an abbreviation for "care of"
usually used for a temporary mailing address.
So what should I write the c/o section? I mean I already filled the other boxes in that "latest address in coutry of origin" section.
So, care of John Doe?

It simply means to send it to someone besides you who will see that you get it.  For example, if you wanted to have it sent to your father if you were unsure  where you would be:

Your Name
c/o of your father
your fathers address
your fathers city
