MANILA — Following the death of Libya strongman Muammar Gaddafi, Senator Manuel Villar said that more jobs in Libya are expected to thrive with the impending reconstruction of the Arab nation.
Speaking at the sideline of the Villar Foundation’s feeding and medical mission for the flood victims in Barangay Tambang, Bulacan, Bulacan, Villar said that as Libya undergoes reconstruction after the war, it will need the services of many Filipinos.
He cautioned, however, overseas Filipino workers who were displaced at the height of the Libya crisis, to wait for the situation to normalize. Villar Foundation has extended assistance to the OFWs during the conflict in Libya.
”We helped our OFWs but most of them opted to stay in Libya despite the unrest because of concerns that they have no source of income here in our country,” Villar said.
The same foundation of Villar has extended medical check-up and medicines to the hundreds of victims of typhoons “Pedring” and “Quiel” that triggered floods in the provinces of Pampanga, Bulacan and Nueva Ecija.
”For the last two days, we have been doing this feeding program and medical mission. We will continue to help our unfortunate countrymen,” Villar said.
