Gov't to help Filipinos from Haiti

Manila (4 February) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has instructed the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to assist Filipinos arriving from Haiti.

Executive Eduardo Ermita made the disclosure in a press briefing held last Wednesday, February 3, 2010.

Some 42 Filipinos are expected in the country this week, with 11 arriving tomorrow and another 30 coming on Friday. The two groups will be escorted by Philippine Vice Consul to Havana Jason Anasarias and Philippine Ambassador to Havana Macarthur Corsino, respectively.

Aside from 172 Filipino peacekeepers, there are an estimated 290 overseas Filipino workers in Haiti, mostly occupying middle and upper management positions in the garments, telecommunication, and power generation sectors.

Twenty three Filipinos arrived over the weekend from Haiti, which was devastated by a series of earthquakes two week ago. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
