11 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) deceived by their employer in Saudi Arabia were welcomed by DZRH upon their arrival on Thursday, July 18, at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Pasay City.
The 11 OFWs were among the 20 Filipino workers employed by RDB-Elsief Pre-Cast Company Company. Their salaries were withheld after they finished their two-year contract with the company.
The Philippine Overseas Labor Office – Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (POLO-OWWA) helped the said OFWs to return home after DZRH program Aksyon Bantay brought their distress to the attention of the government.
The OFWs flew back to the Philippines on-board Philippine Airlines flight PR-655.
