It seems like there are still cases of stealing that’s going on with ‘balikbayan boxes’ which are being sent Overseas Filipino Workers working tirelessly abroad.
A 78-year-old woman felt totally dismayed after seeing the ‘balikbayan box’ she sent from Texas, United States.
“Pati diaper ko nawala? Natawa na lang po ako,” says Nenita Ramillano.
Ramillano went to Texas for a vacation for three months and she sent home the things that she kept there. The ‘balikbayan box’ arrived in December but she was totally dismayed upon seeing it because some people got obviously laid a hand on it.
“Di ko na matandaan lahat ang laman pero pagbukas ko sabi ko bakit ganito parang pipe, binuksan. Nawala pati diaper pang matanda, wall clock, vitamins, saka mga Christmas decor,” says Ramillano.
According to ABS-CBN News, Ramillano sent her concern to the freight company when she sent the box and from there, they cannot produce a concrete explanation.
Ramillano decided to seek further assistance at Lingkod Kapamilya DZMM in the hopes of getting the help she highly needed.
“Para sa bahay ko inipon ko doon. Nagtataka po ako sa kanila lang nangyari. Marami po akong boxes na ipinadala, nakarating naman nang maayos,” Ramillano explained.
As of the moment, the incident is being investigated and they promised to send a refund to the missing things inside the ‘balikbayan box’ of Ramillano.
