Family appeals support for internment of deceased Dubai OFW


The family members and friends of Lea Miabeth Claur Arcitio, the overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Dubai who died recently due to cancer, are seeking help for the funeral of Arcitio whose remains will be repatriated this week through the help of the Philippine Consulate General in Dubai and an Ilocos town mayor.

According to Jazzle Masecampo, one of Arcitio’s friends, the Philippine Consulate General in Dubai has only covered the repatriation cost from Dubai to Manila. Masecampo said that upon appealing on Facebook about the repatriation service of Arcitio from Manila to her province, a town mayor pledged to help them. 

Masecampo, on the other hand, said that the family of the deceased will be needing financial support for the internment of the OFW. 

Arcitio, 39, died last May 28 in her accommodation. She was previously working as a secretary. Her company did not renew her employment visa since October 7 last year as she was on treatment at that time and was not fit to work. She stayed in Dubai so that she could continue her treatment since it was still covered by her health insurance and there were charitable groups that supported her. She left a nine-year-old son to support in the Philippines.

She used to attend Filipino Institute’s guitar and Arabic classes and was usually seen performing during graduation ceremonies. 

To help, you may contact Masecampo at +971 50 386 9462 or Francis Gabriel at +971 56 488 9292.
