OFW from Kuwait commits suicide after quarantine


MANILA – A 42-year-old Filipina has committed suicide after completing her 14-day quarantine in Pasay City in the Philippines on Sunday (April 26).

The Overseas Worker Welfare Administration (OWWA) said that the Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) was staying at the OWWA-provided lodging house when she committed suicide on Sunday morning.

Authorities ruled out foul play.

They did not release details about the suicide or the victim’s identity but said she was a resident of Libungan in Cotabato.

The victim was reportedly in quarantine at the facility with other OFWs from Kuwait beginning on April 4.

OWWA is reportedly working with the army to send the Filipina’s remains to her family in Cotabato. DAJ/Expat Media
