10 Filipinos died in helicopter crash in Afghanistan

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) confirmed yesterday that 16 people died in a helicopter crash at a key NATO airbase in Afghanistan on Sunday and 10 of them are overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

The 10 Filipinos were legally deployed three years ago but due to imposed ban in Afghanistan, they were unable to return to the Philippines.

Due to engaging high salary (approximately 10x better), Pinoys prefers to stay and seek jobs against banned countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon and Nigeria.

Very sad story.... Prayers for the family....
