The Department of Health (DOH) has sent a 14-man medical team to Saudi Arabia.
The group, consisting of doctors and paramedics, intends to provide medical treatment to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) stranded in different camp sites.
Many Filipinos in Saudi Arabia are living in difficult situations in Saudi camps after they lost their jobs due the decline in crude prices.
The DOH team will also conduct psychological debriefings to the Filipino workers.
It will also check the sanitation of the camp sites.
President Duterte earlier ordered the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) to bring the stranded OFWs home.
