Saudi OFW Domestic Helper Pleads to be Rescued from Abusive Employer

Another overseas Filipino worker is in danger in the hands of her employer. The OFW domestic worker, based in Saudi Arabia, is pleading to be rescued from her employers otherwise she may suffer the same fate as Joanna Daniela Demafelis, the Pinay who was found inside a freezer in Kuwait.

“Please help me and get me out of here before I get killed or I kill someone,” begged the unnamed OFW, whose identity has been withheld for her protection. She posted her plea online. Her mother has also sought the help for her daughter.

Interviewed by the Inquirer, the OFW’s mother said her daughter’s employees have confiscated her passport and other travel and identification documents. He has also been repeatedly locked up in her room.

In a phone call to her mother, who lives in Nueva Vizcaya, the desperate OFW said her male employer has also entered her room naked. What’s even worse, her employer’s male friends have tried to forcibly enter her room.

The domestic worker has already sought the help of her recruitment agency but was told she was only making up stories.

According to the Inquirer, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) office in Damman, Saudi Arabia is already working on the case.
