Pinay’s FB post saves her from abuses in Jordan

A Facebook post by a Filipino woman facing alleged abuses by her employer has led to her rescue in Amman, Jordan, officials have said.
Josalyn Ombe, 35, is now under the custody of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (Polo) in Jordan after being rescued from her reportedly abusive employer, reported Inquirer.
“We are looking after Ombe and the Polo is providing her security and requirement,” labor attaché Florenda Herrera reportedly said.
The labor office was quoted as saying that it was closely monitoring the case for further developments and was helping the maid prepare a possible suit against her employer.
Ombe, from Manila, claimed to have been maltreated by her female employer, a certain Ahmed Saleem Marashdeh of Madaba Amman, Jordan.
She first sought help from Abante, a tabloid, which published her Facebook account in February in which she detailed her alleged abuses, including being starved and overworked by her employer, the report said.
“I’m not OK. It’s getting worse here… I need to go out of here before it gets too late. I can’t take it anymore. I hope I can get the assistance I need the soonest,” she had reportedly said.
Ombe was deployed by the World Class Inc. Agency last November as a household service worker, sadi the news portal.
Meanwhile, the Department of Labor and Employment said it had extended financial and livelihood assistance to the family of an OFW killed in Jordan last Feb. 5.
Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III personally delivered the aid to Natividad Dalupang, mother of Felma Dalupang Maramag, who was found dead along with her employer following a fire at her employer’s home, reported Inquirer.
Maramag was reportedly found with bruises all over her body and a stab wound in the skull, which was also cracked due to blunt force trauma. Her remains have been flown to Tuguegarao City and will be buried on Feb. 28, but it was not clear whether labor officials will pursue a case in Jordan.
The victim’s family received P220,000 financial assistance and scholarship assistance for her daughter Angelica from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (Owwa), P50,000 from the recruitment agency, and P500,000 in life insurance, the report said.
The Owwa is also reportedly coordinating with Maramag’s family regarding the release of the victim’s P200,000 savings in the bank.
