OFW Declared Unfit to Work Asks for Media’s Help

Overseas Worker named Rochelle asked BITAG, an investigative program in TV5, for a help.  Rochelle is a balik-mangagawa in Taiwan. As required for her overseas job, she underwent the medical examination  that was apparently declared as “Unfit to Work” by one of the medical clinics in Ermita, Manila.

Not losing hope, Rochelle asked for second opinion at the Lung Center of the Philippines. It turned out that she is healthy and was declared as fit to work, travel and fit to study.

Wanting to know the reasons behind the difference in the results on her two medical exams, the applicant asked the said TV show to take a closer look into her case.

Watch this video and find out what Bitag discovered.
