Senator Nancy Binay’s On The Tension In Hong Kong

As the political tension continues to build across Hong Kong, I appeal to the DFA, DOLE, OWWA, and POLO to put on standby its comprehensive contingency measures alongside their repatriation plans sufficient enough to assist our OFWs and fellow Kababayans in the territory should the situation further escalate.

Umaasa akong isolated cases ang mga report na may mga employer na nag-terminate ng kontrata ng mga household service workers. Gayunpaman, kailangang maghanda tayo sa kung ano mang pangyayari na may direktang epekto sa kapakanan ng ating mga kababayan sa Hong Kong.

In times of distress, communication is everything. Should there be a need to activate repatriation plans, Filipino organizations in Hong Kong may be tapped to reach out to OFWs who are directly affected by the ongoing protests.

Kumpiyansa akong maayos na matutugunan ng ating Consulate Office sa Hong Kong ang pagsiguro sa kapakanan ng ating mga kababayan.

Kami sa Senado ay patuloy na umaantabay sa sitwasyon. We will extend all the necessary support to concerned agencies in order to guarantee the welfare and safety of Filipinos in Hong Kong and its three territories.(senate.gov.ph)
