128 OFWs from Saudi Arabia arrive home

128 Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who were stranded in Saudi Arabia have arrived home.

They were welcomed by President Rodrigo Duterte at the NAIA Terminal 2.

In his speech, the President told the OFWs who were retrenched as a result of the crisis in Saudi, that he is trying to find jobs for them in their homeland.

He also said, he had planned on going to Saudi Arabia to help the troubled workers, but he was advised against it.

“Gusto kong pumunta doon para pumapel, para maayos ang kundisyon, pero wag daw muna.”

He told the OFWs to inform his office if they have nothing to eat.

He said, the OFWs can call Malacañang Hotline 8888 for complaints or see either Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay or Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III.
