The Department of Foreign Affairs, through the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait, initiated a gift-giving program as a way of sending the love of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to distressed Filipinos in Kuwait.

The Philippine Embassy in Kuwait and the Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers’ Affairs of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA-OUMWA) gave out cash and care packages under the DFA’s gift-giving program for distressed Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) on 26 to 28 November 2019

Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. and Consul General Mohd. Noordin Pendosina N. Lomondot and Executive Director of DFA-OUMWA Enrico T. Fos led the distribution of USD$100 financial assistance and hygiene kits to each of the 265 wards at the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Resource Center (MWOFRC) and at the Kuwait Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) Shelter.

The two officials also visited the Sulaibiya Central Jail to check on the condition of close to 50 Filipinos who are serving their prison sentences at Kuwait’s main detention facility, as well as to distribute personal hygiene kits.

In a statement, Chargé d’Affaires Lomondot expressed his gratitude to Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro L. Locsin Jr. and Foreign Affairs Undersecretary for Migrant Workers’ Affairs Sarah Lou Y. Arriola “for making Kuwait the first stop in the DFA’s Christmas gift-giving program for distressed OFWs in the Middle East.”

“[It’s] a way of telling our distressed OFWs that their government has not forgotten them,” Chargé d’Affaires Lomondot said.
