Abused OFW in Saudi seek help to go home

An overseas Filipino worker in Saudi Arabia is crying for help after repeatedly experiencing maltreatment from her employer and agent in the said Gulf country.

The 38-year-old domestic helper, identity withheld, started working in Saudi Arabia in 2017, reported GMA News.

Since then, she said that she experienced physical abuse, as well as getting sold to other employers.

The OFW also ask to be rescued since her employer would sometimes lock her up and starve her.

She said that when her employer would try to take her back to her recruitment agency, her agent would take advantage of her.

A sibling of the OFW said that they would want the latter to get rescued as soon as possible since she might get sold to a different employer making it difficult for them to track her location.

The OFW’s family have also sought the help of authorities.

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said: “Ang pinaka kailangan dito na maagap ay puntahan ‘yung area. Iko-coordinate din natin sa Philippine Labor Office, sa POLO at sa ating welfare officer on the ground.”

“Siyempre, sa embahada din natin, idudulog din natin kay Ambassador Alonto, at kay Labor Atashey Mustafa ‘yung sitwasyon na ito na kailangan maagap na masagip,” he added.
