THE Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) reports the deaths of three overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), two females and one male, as a result of the heavy flooding in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The two females died due to suffocation inside their vehicle during the flooding. The third victim died due to major injuries sustained from an accident when his vehicle fell into a sinkhole at the height of the flooding.

DMW Officer-in-Charge Hans Leo J. Cacdac and the entire DMW family offer our heartfelt condolences and sympathies to the families and relatives of our departed OFWs. 

The department assures the families of the three OFWs of its fullest support and assistance.
