A top official from the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) sympathized with the family of one of the OFWs who was recently found dead inside their accommodations in Dubai.
DMW Secretary Susan Toots Ople shared on Facebook a photo of her condoling the mother of one of the OFWs.
“When words fail me. Sometimes, a hug says it best,” he wrote.
She assured that the agency is closely working with the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to monitor the case.
On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, DFA said that investigation into the death of the two OFWs was ongoing.
“On the 2 OFWs found dead in Dubai, [please] be informed DFA OUMWA has instructed the Philippine Consulate General to coordinate closely with competent authorities in the UAE (United Arab Emirates) on this case. Investigations are ongoing,” DFA spokesperson Ma. Teresita Daza earlier said.
