This young domestic helper first went to Saudi Arabia to seek a greener pasture for her family in the Philippines, just like any other OFW’s dream.
However, just within months of working abroad, her once beautiful and fresh face turned out full of bruises caused by her employer.
Facebook user Emy Beniano Depo posted images of the woman but forgot to include other important information such as her name, current address, and name of her agency. All she hoped is for her to get some help as soon as possible.
According to Emy, the OFW was ex-wife of her brother and she cared to help her return to the Philippines. The unnamed OFW went to Saudi Arabia to work as a domestic helper last October and it was just this year that they found out about the ill-treatment of her employer towards her.
The OFW already wants to return to the Philippines where she can properly seek medical assistance through the presence of her family.
It’s sad to think that another life was placed into danger because of an employer who treats their domestic worker as though they are nothing less than a person. This reality should be a reminder to all those aspiring OFWs. Life abroad is totally hard especially since you are dealing with other nationalities with different customs and traditions.
