It is true that there are a lot of domestic helpers abroad that needs immediate help yet the government agencies which is assigned in helping them remains mum towards the issue.
Facebook user Gracia Encabo Masicampo posted images of a certain Rosemarie Calunsag on her Facebook account. According to her, Rosemarie has been in the hospital for a year already and no help was given to her.
Still, according to her post, they already notified the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), the Philippine and UAE Embassy to no avail. They were told that Rosemarie will be sent back to the Philippines soon but until now, she is still in the hospital waiting for the help to arrive.
The Facebook user previously checked on her but now, the hospital forbids them to visit, leaving Rosemarie all alone.
Gracia also noted in her post the fast action that OWWA made when it comes to the repatriation of Sheerlyn Gerasta, the OFW who had marital issues. She was sent back to the Philippines after her husband went to Raffy Tulfo to ask for help. In less than a month, Sheerlyn was deported from Saudi Arabia where she worked as a domestic helper.
Gracia wants the same fast response to Rosemarie, considering her condition.
