(By GMA News, 14 July 2012)

At least 17 more overseas Filipino workers are due to arrive home in two batches this weekend, the Department of Foreign Affairs said Saturday.

In a news release, the DFA said two of the repatriated OFWs are to arrive Saturday on an Etihad Airlines flight (EY 424).

The other 15 are to arrive at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 aboard an Emirates flight (EK-334) at 10:10 p.m.

Of the 15 repatriates to arrive Sunday, 10 are from the Syrian capital Damascus, while the rest are from the coastal cities of Tartous and Latakia and the conflict-stricken city of Homs, it said.

Last July 12, the DFA said seven other OFWs from Aleppo arrived home, their repatriation facilitated by the Embassy and the Philippine Honorary Consul.

As of July 12, at least 1,775 Filipinos have been repatriated since the Philippine government started carrying out its mandatory repatriation plan for Syria in December 2011.

Meanwhile, the DFA urged anew the families of Filipinos in Syria to provide its Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers' Affairs (OUMWA) with information regarding their next-of-kin's location and contact details.

They can call the OUMWA at (02) 834-4996 or (02) 834-3333.
