New batch of repatriated OFWs from Kuwait arrives in PH

A second batch of overseas FIlipino workers (OFWs) from Kuwait has arrived in the country on Sunday, April 27.

The Department of Foreign Affairs welcomed 22 OFWs who were part of more than 600 workers who sought refuge at the Philippine Embassy in the Gulf state.

DFA Undersecretary Sarah Lou Arriola said the agency has given each overseas worker Php5,000 as financial aid. The foreign affairs department also shouldered the airfare of the workers to their homes in the provinces.

She added that most of the repatriates from Kuwait are from Mindanao.

The first batch of OFWs arrived in the country on Saturday and more repatriates are expected to be coming home in the following weeks.

The repatriation of workers is one of the conditions of the PHilippine government to Kuwait before the signing of a labor deal and the total lifting of the deployment ban to the Gulf state.

President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered Labor secretary Silvestre Bello III to bring home OFWs in Kuwait after the authorities discovered the body of Filipina worker Joanna Demafelis stuffed inside a freezer in an abandoned apartment in Kuwait.
