The government is ready to send Filipino workers back to their home country.
Two Filipino citizens are still missing after the catastrophic Beirut explosion that killed almost a hundred people on Tuesday. One of the two aforementioned is a seafarer while the other is a household worker.
The Department of Foreign Affairs stated that the seafarer is one of the 11 sailors who went missing after the explosion.
Undersecretary Sarah Arriola said they jumped into the water as the poweful blast sent a massive shockwave across the area. Apparently, their ship, cruise liner MV Orient Queen, was only 400 meters away from the blast site.
The Philippine Embassy in Beirut announced that 10 of the sailors have been found. They only sustained minor injuries and are now staying at Abu Merhi Cruises at Ain el Mraiseh.
Still, two Filipinos died from the horrifying incident.
Hans Leo Cadac of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) informed the relatives of the deceased that the government will repatriate their remains. However, they are still verifying the identitiy of the other casualty.
Meanwhile, DFA Undersecretary Arriola said they are ready to bring everyone home. She said, “those who are ready to go home, will be home. For those who can’t leave yet, we will work hard to bring you home. We see that we have to fasttrack the repatriation.”
The DFA is already planning to send 230 Filipinos home over the weekend, including the remains of the two Overseas Filipino Workers.
