Repatriation of stranded OFWs in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia


13 March 2011


To:     Hon. Jejomar C. Binay

         Vice President, Republic of the Philippines




Subject: Repatriation of stranded OFWs in Jeddah



Dear Sir,


Warm greetings!


We would like to formally endorse to your kind attention, in your capacity as the Presidential adviser of OFWs concern, the repatriation of stranded OFWs in Jeddah.


To this date, there are still more than 500+ stranded OFWs inside the Jeddah deportation center. We have attached herewith some of the 

names of the stranded we have gathered. While there are about more than 500+ staying at the Al-Mina hajj terminal.


The stranded have been at the deportation center for almost three months. According to PH consular officials in Jeddah, they have already requested airfare tickets for the stranded, but this has been the same reply we have received since 2 months ago when we followed the stranded OFWs repatriation.


In this regard, we are requesting that the concerned agencies like DFA-OUMWA and DoLE-OWWA will be reminded to arrange for the needed travel documents and airplane tickets of the stranded so that they will be repatriated without further delay.


We would like to convey our appreciation in advance for your affirmative action on this request from the stranded OFWs.


Thank you and best regards,


John Leonard Monterona

Migrante-Middle East regional coordinator
