Philippines welcomes 60 Filipinos from India including baby who underwent liver transplant

-

- Advertisment -

Coinciding with its 122nd year as an institution, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) welcomed 60 overseas Filipinos from New Delhi, India. The returning group included nine seafarers and five babies who underwent liver transplant in India. The repatriates landed at NAIA Terminal 1 at 1725H aboard Air India Flight AI 1310.

Mrs. Rhona Kwan, mother of Baby Danice, donated a part of her liver for her daughter’s transplant surgery. She narrated that they were in India since February 2020. They were supposed to go home in May but they got stranded because of the lockdown. As Baby Danice is medically compromised, her family was given exemption from facility quarantine and will be doing home quarantine instead.

Other repatriates underwent routine health screening and mandatory RT-PCR test for arriving passengers. The One-Stop Shop at the airport provided support and ensured that Filipinos will be given assistance on their way to the quarantine facilities.

The repatriation was a joint effort of the DFA, through the Philippine Embassy in New Delhi, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Bureau of Quarantine, Philippine Coast Guard, among others, in line with the Government’s commitment to bring home distressed Filipinos amid the global health crisis.
