4th Laging Handa documentary 'Repatriation' turns spotlight on returning OFWs from Lebanon

CALOOCAN CITY, Oct. 19 (PIA) -- The Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) will showcase today the repatriation process of over 300 distressed overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Beirut, Lebanon amid the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, in the fourth episode of the Laging Handa Dokyu series.

Catch the fourth episode of the Laging Handa Dokyu series entitled “Repatriation” tonight at 9:30 PM on PTV-4 and IBC-13. It will also be livestreamed on the PCOO’s social media accounts, as well as the NTF COVID-19 and Department of Foreign Affairs Facebook pages, and other government-affiliated social media pages.

The PCOO Office of the Global Media and Public Affairs and Radio Television MalacaΓ±ang flew to Beirut in a chartered flight organized by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, and the Office of the Presidential Assistant on Foreign Affairs to capture the journey of the OFWs to get their stories of hardship and sacrifice while providing for their families back home amid the pandemic.

The documentary will give viewers exclusive access to the repatriation process of OFWs from the pre-departure, the 13-hour flight back to Manila, the mandatory quarantine period, up until their departure to their home provinces.

"The Duterte administration recognizes the big contribution of our overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in our economy. They are considered as the modern heroes, as they sacrifice themselves to work abroad to provide for their families and our nation, even as they have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte assured that the OFWs are brought home safe, and are provided with livelihood assistance for their new lives here in our country," PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar said.

The 31-hour mission on September 25-26, 2020, was led by Chief of Presidential Protocol and Presidential Assistant on Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Robert Eric A. Borje as Special Envoy for the repatriation and goodwill mission in Beirut, Lebanon, following the directive of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to safely bring back the OFWs.

The same documentary also featured the goodwill mission in Beirut, where the Philippine delegation turned over 5,000 boxes of relief goods, 3,000 boxes of surgical masks, 27,500 face shields, and 1,000 boxes of vitamins  for the Filipino community in Beirut, and partner Lebanese institutions and organizations.

"Like what President Duterte said, the OFWs' role is important not just because they remit dollars to our country, but because of their sacrifice. Your role is important because of your sacrifices. You are all not just a number. You are our brothers and sisters, our children, our parents and our friends. You all deserve to be served by the government because of your sacrifices," Undersecretary Borje told the OFWs as they returned to Manila.

The government was able to repatriate 204,481 OFWs as of September 2020, 2,596 of which were brought home from Lebanon since December last year.  

“The fourth documentary is part of the PCOO’s commitment to not only inform the public, but also to demystify every component and every effort of the government in response to the pandemic,” said Assistant Secretary JV Arcena, who is the Production Head and Executive Producer of the Laging Handa Dokyu.

The succeeding episodes of the Laging Handa Dokyu will provide insights on the country’s development of testing laboratories, participation in clinical trials, contact tracing and testing efforts, the best practices of local government units, and the experiences of some government officials hit by COVID-19.

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.

15 Things That Make You a Baguio Person

Here are random instances that might make you feel the feels: Despite the fact that everyone gets enthusiastic about strawberries, you go, "Like, duh! We have a whole farm of those!" you roll your eyes and add everything else is strawberry-tized -- from jams to wines to taho!  You recognize how fresh vegetables really looks, smells and tastes like, and as Sayote may cost a fortune in other areas, in Baguio, you can ask from your neighbour’s backyard or you're lucky if the vines has branched out over your side already.  You secretly know the lyrics to country music when it is played on the radio, more so you sing along every time the Magic 99.9 jingle is on. Leather jackets are for cowboys, denim jackets are what you take when you go swimming and those killer boots? those are made for Baguio walking.  Midland is where you check out what’s in, hot and not in the city including obituaries.  Dainty, Star CafΓ© or Luisa’s is where the oldies meet up for

Isang Pasasalamat

Sabi nila: “There’s always something to be thankful for.” Kaya ako din may sasabihin! 🀣✌️ Isang pasasalamat! πŸ’— Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa akin, maraming salamat po. Sa mga pagtulong sa akin, kahit hindi ko sinasabi, pero ginagawa pa rin, Thank you. Hindi ko man nasasabi personally pero taos puso ang pasasalamat ko sa inyo. Alam kong alam niyo na kung sino kayo. Isa na lang mahihiling ko talaga, ang mapanatili ang genuine and lasting friendship na nabuo natin. πŸ’— Kung may nasaktan o na-offend ako dahil sa mga paniniwala o pangbubully ko. Humihingi ako ng paumanhin. Kung isa ka sa ma-ooffend ko pa lang. Humihingi na ako agad ng paumanhin. Dahil din sa inyo, may natutunan at matututunan ako. Kung isa ka sa mga nagsasabing suplado ako, pasensiya na. Nagkakamali po kayo. =) Sa mga napasaya ko kahit paano, maraming salamat. Kayo ang magiging inspirasyon ko na ipagpatuloy ang paglaban ng taas noo at ngiting tagos hanggang puso sa darating pang mga taon. Sa mga nakakamiss sa akin,
