16-year-old OFW narrowly escapes death after recruiter starved her

A 16-year-old overseas Filipina worker (OFW) in Saudi Arabia narrowly escaped death when his recruitment agency in Saudi Arabia allegedly starved her after she left her employer who sexually harassed her.

The Filipina named Sarapia Alim was abused by her employer’s son, forcing her to escape. She went straight to the office of her recruitment agency “Venos” to seek help.

However, the agency allegedly took all her money and even starved the Filipina while she was seeking an refuge.

The OFW’s cousin claimed in a Facebook post that the young Alim had a swollen heart and vomiting blood because of the incident.

Alim’s cousin also claimed the agency forged the Filipina’s document so would be allowed to work abroad.

After the post went viral, a local news portal in the Philippines reported that Alim has already returned home. No detail was given as to how she was able to fly to the Philippines.
