Twelve undocumented Filipino children were repatriated from Kuwait and are looking forward to meet their family in the Philippines.
One of those repatriated was an undocumented Filipina Fatima and her two children aged 15 to 17 years old. She married a Bangladeshi and was not able to send her children to school. She couldn’t leave the country without settling her debt and a friend from Kuwait was helping her financially.
Eventually, the travel ban against her was lifted, and the Philippine embassy helped provide her and her children with travel documents.
Another child going home is seven-year-old Reema, who has been living with the embassy for almost two years since her parents were deported.
Most of the repatriated children were born out of wedlock. As Kuwait law sends unmarried couples to prison, the children are also affected.
The embassy encourages the parents to cooperate with them so they can immediately process the repatriation.

FYI…Para po sa mga OFWs sa Kuwait na may anak na undocumented o walang iqama (residence visa), magtungo lamang po sa PH Embassy sa Hateen area at pakihanap lamang po sina Vice Consul Shiena Tesorero, DSWD Attache Annie Mendoza o ATNU staff Nabil Tarosan para sa agarang pagproseso ng kanilang travel document.-Maxxy Santiago
