Meanwhile, according to GMA News, The Philippines said Saturday it would within days send government missions to Saudi Arabia to help thousands of jobless Filipinos left stranded across the kingdom after the plunge in oil prices.

The first batch of officials would fly to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday "to provide immediate humanitarian, legal, and other consular assistance to the overseas Filipino workers stranded in work camps across Saudi Arabia," a Foreign Affairs Department statement said.

The immediate target is to bring aid to "those without food and in dire need of medical care and other support services", it added.

Likewise, families of affected OFWs who are still stranded in the kingdom may get P6,000 financial assistance.
