More Filipino maids to arrive in Qatar soon: embassy official
More Filipino housemaids will be deployed to Qatar in the coming months as the number of contracts being processed by the Philippine Overseas Labour Office in Doha (POLO) has increased five times over the past few weeks, labour attache Leopoldo De Jesus has said.
From an average of 15 contracts per day, POLO now receives at least 70 to 75 contracts of housemaids for verification and processing. These workers have been recruited by Qatari families who are willing to pay the minimum $400 monthly salary set by the Philippine government for domestic workers.
