63 undocumented Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) are back in the country.

Most of the undocumented workers were household service workers and victims of physical abuse, food depravation and late monthly salary.

“DFA welcomes the arrival of 63 undocumented OFWs (Batch 5) from Kuwait under the Philippine Embassy’s Assisted Repatriation Program. The DFA Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers’ Affairs (OUMWA) shouldered their airfare to Manila and respective provinces,” the DFA said in a statement.

One of the 63 repatriated workers, ‘Marilyn’ told ABS-CBN News that she was an undocumented worker for two years.

“Overworked po ako tapos nagkasakit na ako ng sobra. Binenta po nila ako sa ibang tao,” she told ABS-CBN News.

This is the fifth batch of undocumented OFWs repatriated to the country under the Embassy Assisted Repatriation Program (EARP) in partnership with the Kuwaiti government.

At least 264 undocumented OFWS were able to go back home under EARP this year.
