Senator Richard ‘Dick’ Gordon raises his concerns for the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) trapped in strife-torn Lebanon before members of the media during the Kapihan sa Senado Thursday afternoon. Gordon filed a bill seeking to amend the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act of 1995 following the evacuation and employment issues affecting the OFWs in Lebanon. Recently, President Arroyo ordered the total evacuation of all Filipinos in Lebanon as war heightens between Israeli and Hezbollah forces. (Senate Photo by Albert Calvelo, PRIB)
