OFWs given amnesty in Kuwait on their way home

Filipinos who availed of a general amnesty granted by the Kuwaiti government are escorted by a policewoman as they arrive at the Kuwait International Airport on Friday on their way home to Manila amid the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. Despite their undocumented status, the Filipinos, mostly distressed OFWs who left their employers after experiencing maltreatment, have been cleared to exit on humanitarian grounds because of the pandemic.
