Filipina domestic helper puwede nang magtrabaho sa Kuwait


Inatasan kagabi ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte si Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III na alisin na ang ban sa pagpapadala ng Filipino workers sa Kuwait. “Upon recommendation of Special Envoy to Kuwait Abdullah Ma­ma-o­, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte tonight instructed Secretary Silvestre Bello to totally lift the ban on deployment of Filipino workers to Kuwait,” ayon kay Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.

“He said the lifting of the ban includes domestic helpers,” dagdag pa niya.

Kasabay nito, sinisipat ng Overseas Worker­s Welfare Admi­nistration (OWWA) ang pagtatayo ng mga day-off center sa Kuwait upang matambayan ng mga Filipina domestic helper sa araw na wala silang trabaho.

Ayon kay OWWA Deputy Administrator Arnell Ignacio, ayaw ng mga employer na bigyan ng day-off ang mga DH sa takot na kaibiganin ito ng mga lalaki sa labas at magsama.

“Maybe there are solutions to the problem, so we are laying down some solutions, and setting up day-off centers is one good answer to employers’ apprehensions. We’ll try to set up the facilities for housemaids to enjoy – like sporting activities and so on – in that particular place,” wika ni Ignacio.

“These people are humans and they need to socialize. They can do this in this special center, so that once a week they can have a day off with the rest of the ladies,” depensa pa niya.
