76 overseas Filipinos return home via 'Balik Pampanga Program'

SEVENTY-SIX returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) have returned home safely under the “Balik Pinas, Balik Pampanga Program” of Governor Dennis Pineda.

The said individuals have undergone quarantine protocols and have tested negative for coronavirus. The returnees have been safely ferried back to their respective homes in the province.

The "Balik Pinas, Balik Pampanga" program fast-tracks the processing of repatriated Kapampangan overseas Filipino workers, including non-working individuals, to their families after months of being stranded across the globe.

The province had extended assistance to the returning overseas Kapampangans through RT-PCR testing and mandatory quarantine in government quarantine facilities.

The Province helps process their quarantine results and even ferries them to their respective towns and cities after quarantine.

Currently, 5,335 Kapampangans have been assisted through the program, 111 are currently quarantined in New Clark City and 5,244 have been safely repatriated.
