MANILA, Philippines — The remains of Paul Castelvi, who was among four overseas Filipino workers (OFW) killed during the Oct. 7 Hamas attack in Israel, will arrive home soon, according to the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).

Castelvi’s wife and child will bring his ashes back to the Philippines.

“The welfare officer in Israel is currently processing the documents of Jovelle and her baby in anticipation of their return to the Philippines,” OWWA posted on Facebook.

The two are expected to arrive before Christmas.

Meanwhile, the 11th batch of Filipino workers affected by the Israel-Hamas conflict is coming home today.

The Department of Migrant Workers reported that the latest batch of 27 OFWs from Israel is comprised of 25 caregivers and two hotel workers.
