Many times people say nega
tive comments about how the Philippine government is handling OFWs coming from other countries, but a brighter side was shared by an OFW who just arrived from a neighbor country, Indonesia.
On a post, Rhie Ya shared her experience as one of the OFWs who benefited from the free repatriation flight offered by the Philippine Embassy in Indonesia.
She said she knows how hard it is to avail of the free flight offered for Filipinos who wish to go back to Philippines but she still tried it. And with much luck, she got the flight booked; saying,
“I might have done something good because I was given a seat to this free repatriation flight. To make the long story short, I was one of the passengers of the free repatriation flight last June 10, 2020.”
Moving on with her post she shared that the free repatriation flight “was not a walk in the park” because they should undergo the COVID-19 rapid test before they could avail the free repatriation flight.
When they arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), she told of the process they went through which went smoothly based on her post. She even commended their “everything is free” accommodation, at the Century Park Hotel Manila, which is known as one of the country’s renowned hotels in Manila. They stayed there while waiting for the result of the swab test which was released after four days (in her case she said).
Finally, “thanks be to God my result was negative,” she remarked, adding that she, as well as those who tested negative from the virus were “brought to the comfort of our homes — door to door!” she added.
Rhie Ya, at the end of her post, expressed her gratitude,
“From the bottom of my h
eart and my hypothalamus THANK YOU VERY MUCH Philippine Embassy, Jakarta, Indonesia, Philippine Coast Guard, OWWA (Overseas Workers Welfare Administration), Bureau of Quarantine, the Philippine Government and President Duterte SALAMAT SALAMAT!!!”
