Through the help of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), the OFW in Kuwait who suffered from stroke was finally repatriated back to her family last August 23.

Marie and Michael were excited to see their sister Marie Christy as they patiently wait for her in the arrival-departure at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Upon seeing her, they couldn’t contain their emotions and burst in tears as they see their sister sitting on a wheelchair.

Marie Christy is an OFW in Kuwait who suffered a stroke and her body was paralyzed last April.

“Ngayong nandito nap o siya, mas maalagaan na namin tsaka panatag na po yung loob namin na abot kamay napo naming si ate,” says Marie Camille.

She also thanked all the people who helped in the repatriation of her sister.

“Gusto ko pong pasalamat anyung mga tumulong po sa amin,” she added.

Her family also asked for continuous support from OWWA for her sister who is recuperating from her condition.

“Yung medical assistance parinnasiguro kung kailangan ng financial support saospital at yung continued medication niya. Kung makarecovernamansiya, maytulongkamingpangkabuhayan,” says Jocelyn Hapal, Head of Repatriat.

Christy was flown back to her hometown in Negros Occidental where her family greeted her. All worries were wiped out from Christy’s mother as she finally had a glimpse of her daughter after three long years.
