Saudi Arabia to expedite repatriation of Filipino workers in distress
Saudi Arabia is expected to expedite the repatriation of almost 200 distressed Filipino workers after a productive meeting between high level officials on both sides.
The workers, most of whom are domestic helpers, are at the Philippine Consulate General in Jeddah, waiting for their cases to be processed. Many of the cases involve non-payment of salaries.
The Filipino workers have been taken care of by the Philippine state having received support and care packages from the president and the foreign ministry.
