“Your death will never be in vain” – that is the call for justice of Facebook user Shane Lara after a fellow domestic helper in Hong Kong died due to the late response of her employer.
In a Facebook post, Shane Lara conveyed her dismay to the employers of the woman whose picture was on her post. According to Shane, the domestic helper kept on asking for help from her employer because she was not feeling well since 1 a.m.
“HINDI MAWAWALAN NG SAYSAY ANG LAHAT NG PAGPAPAHIRAP SAYO NG AMO MO AT MAGING ANG PAGMAMAKAAWA MO NA HUMIHINGI NG TULONG SA KANYA NA DALHIN KA SA HOSPITAL DAHIL NAHIHIRAPAN KA NG HUMINGA AT NAGDUDURA KANA NG DUGO MULA 1AM AT INABOT PA NG 8AM NA HINDI KA NIYA ITINAKBO SA HOSPITAL. HINDI MO NA KAILANGAN PANG HUMINGI NG TULONG SA AKIN PARA MAITAKBO KA LANG SA HOSPITAL,” Shane writes in her post.
The Filipina had difficulty breathing and vomiting blood, an emergency situation that needs immediate action.
However, the Filipina suffered for long hours, receiving no help from her employers. It was only at 8 a.m. when she was sent to the hospital. It was 7 hours of agony, to be exact.
“A MINUTE OF CALL FOR AN AMBULANCE IS ENOUGH FOR YOUR EMPLOYER TO DO IT! YOU DON’T DESERVE TO SUFFER THAT LONG..YOUR DEATH IS UNNECESSARY IF ACTION HAS BEEN DONE RIGHT AFTER YOU COMPLAIN AND INFORM YOUR EMPLOYER! I WILL DO EVERYTHING I COULD TO GET JUSTICE THAT YOU DESERVE AS WELL AS FOR THE REST OUR FELLOW DOMESTIC HELPERS WHO MAY ALSO FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES AND ARE SUFFERING WITH THE SAME KIND OF EMLPOYER,” Shane added.
Shane couldn’t help but condemn the slow action which was given to her by her employers when it only needs a minute or two to call an ambulance and give her immediate medication.
Shane wanted justice for her friend who suffered from the hands of her heartless employer. If only medical assistance was given to her promptly, she should still be alive at the moment, claims the Facebook user.
“Please Pakishare niyo Kailangan Napo Matigil Ang Pangaabuso At Makalaboso Ang Dapat Managot! HINDI LANG PERA ANG SAGOT DITO KUNDI HOSTISYA! KAILANGAN PO NATIN NG PAGKAKAISA PARA MAPAGTIBAY ANG BATAS NA NAGPOPROTEKTA SA KALUSUGAN AT SEGURIDAD NATING MGA MANGGAGAWA DITO SA HONG KONG,” she said.
She also wants to end the bad treatment of employers towards Filipino domestic helpers in Hong Kong. She noted that there are employers who let their helpers work more than the allowed number of hours, making them really tired and unhealthy.
HINDI MAWAWALAN NG SAYSAY ANG LAHAT NG PAGPAPAHIRAP SAYO NG AMO MO AT MAGING ANG PAGMAMAKAAWA MO NA HUMIHINGI NG TULONG…
