THE four Filipino seafarers who survived the ship collision in the Pacific Ocean two weeks ago are set to come home next week, according to the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (Owwa).

In a televised public briefing, Owwa Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said he was able to receive information that the four overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) are already set to return home next week.

"As far as I know, by next week, they can already go home," said Cacdac.

He said that at present, their relatives have nothing to worry about the four as they are currently staying in hotels in Taiwan.

The Owwa chief said this was ascertained after the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (Polo) in Taiwan visited the seafarers on Thursday, June 23, 2022.

"They are in good hands as they are currently under quarantine. They just need to take care of themselves in their hotel quarantine homes," said Cacdac.

Last June 8, the Korean Reefer Ship Momyo sank after it was hit by a Taiwanese vessel in the Pacific Ocean area between Papua New Guinea and Solomon Island.

The four OFWs are among the 31 crew members, along with Indonesians, Koreans, Vietnamese, and Ghanians, that survived the sea mishap. (HDT/SunStar Philippines)
