We are truly grateful,” Bello said.  The pardoned workers will be repatriated and receive assistance from the government, he said.  Bello graced a gathering of more than 4,000 Filipino migrant workers in Doha last June 12 in observance of Philippine Independence Day organized by the Philippine embassy in the oil-rich country.  The event, which Minister Essa Bin Saad Al Jafali Al Nuaimi of the Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs, and other Qatari officials attended, coincided with the celebration of Ed’l Fitr.  “I also join our migrant workers in expressing our sincere gratitude for the generosity of His Excellency Minister Nuaimi in co-hosting the gathering,” he said.  According to the latest study, the state of Qatar is among the top destination countries of OFWs in the Middle East, next to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.  Bello ordered all labor attaches assigned to various Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) to conduct an inventory of jailed OFWs, particularly those awaiting executions so that the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and its attach agencies could come out with a better and speedy assistance program to distressed OFWs and their families.  Bello said he has also instructed the POLOs to provide the OFWs, both documented and undocumented, the necessary on-site assistance and services to help their dependents.  “Whether the OFW is regular, documented or irregular, undocumented, he or she will be provided with free legal services and in-country assistance, such as the preparation of supporting documentation.”  There are 27 Filipino workers who are facing the death penalty in Saudi Arabia, reports said.  According to government records, at least 87 Filipinos are facing the death penalty abroad, mostly in Malaysia and China.    READ MORE: Can A Family Of Five Survive With P10K Income In A Month?
