79 OFW sa Vietnam, balik-Pinas na
Balik bansa na ang 79 distressed overseas Filipinos mula sa bansang Vietnam.
Napauwi ang mga ito sa pamamagitan ng Embahada ng Pilipinas katuwang ang Pinoy at Immigration Department ng Ministry of Public Security, Ministry of Foreign Affairs ng Vietnam at tanggapan ng Philippine Airlines sa Vietnam.
“The distressed Filipino nationals in Ho Chi Minh City requested the Philippine government’s assistance as many of them have been without work due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in the host country,” ayon sa statement ng embahada.
“Prior to this latest repatriation, the embassy had already repatriated 378 overseas Filipinos in 2021 alone, and a total 847 overseas Filipinos since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” saad pa nito.
