At least 100 Filipinos in Haiti’s Delmas district have been accounted for and were safe, the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said on Sunday.
The DFA quoted Lt. Col. Lope Dagoy, 10th Philippine Contingent commander, as saying that an initial census of Filipinos in the Delmas district had been conducted to determine their locations and conditions.
Delmas is a district in the Ouest Department of Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, where a sizeable number of Filipinos reside. The list was drawn from three areas — Delmas 31, Delmas 41 and Delmas 56.
“Some 100 Filipinos were identified, accounted for, and found to be in safe physical condition. These include two religious nuns with the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sister of Haiti,” the department said in a statement posted on its Website.
