In an article from CanadianInquirer.net, the remains of the Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), Mariah Edna Daaca, who died due to complications of asthma has been returned to its family in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental.
Provincial Information Officer Nicole Managbanag said that the remains of the Jasaan-native Daaca arrived from Manila to Laguindingan Airport last Monday, October 9.
Managbanag also said that the body of Daaca has been frozen since September of this year at the hospital in Qatar where she was previously confined with her illness.
On the other hand, Daaca’s mother Maura Cutanda thanked Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny Emano for extending his assistance to retrieve the dead body of their dead loved one.
Emano, in turn, said that it is part of the duty of the provincial government to return the dead body of a Misamisnon to his/her family wherever part of the world he/she may be coming from.
Managbanag added that the retrieval process has been worked out by the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) through obtaining the help of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).
According to her, PESO was able to make the process of retrieving the body of Daaca in a shorter period of time compared to usual cases where it takes three to four months to be completed.
Daaca worked as a beauty consultant in Qatar since 2012 and was a mother of two.
