A video of a distressed overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Kuwait on Facebook helped the Philippine Embassy to locate her.

The one-minute video shows an OFW named Yvonne Casareno Baal asking for help after her employer accused her of stealing jewelry.

The said video that was posted on January 18 by Mariz Pontillas Sacueza has garnered over 1.6 million views and 54,600 shares.

Yvonne, who came from Baao, Camarines Sur, said that her contract ended on February 13, but her employer kept on making false stories because of the impending completion of her contract.

The OFW said that her employer threatened to have her arrested by the Kuwaiti police for stealing jewelry, an accusation she claims she did not commit.

The OFW was located in Kuwait two days after the Philippine Embassy staff saw the viral video on Facebook.

Yvonne’s employer also agreed to let her go on February 28.

“Yvonne assured us that the Philippine Embassy has talked with her employer and she will be allowed to go home on February 28. But while she is not here, I cannot sleep well,” Mary Baal, the mother of Yvonne, said.

Gemma Amparado, older sister of Yvonne, said her sister’s employer did not continue their previous threat and no charges of theft were pressed against Yvonne.
