Pinay OFW Sent Home by Employer Without Even a Single Centavo, Travels with Just Passport and Ticket and Wearing Maid’s Uniform
A Filipina domestic helper was sent to the Philippines by her employer in Kuwait without even a single centavo on hand. What was only handed to her was her ticket and her passport which she would be needing while travelling in amaid’s uniform.
According to a fellow Filipina who saw the helper named GerameLinguisBaquero, it was in the evening of February 23 when she was seen in the boarding area of an airline just wearing slippers and her uniform. That time, she was about to take an allocated bus for a booked flight at KLM Dutch Royal when they noticed her. She said Gerame was crying and was able to catch the attention of the airport officer who immediately approached her.
Gerame narrated that her employer didn’t allow her to go back to the Philippines to undergo medical surgery to remove the lump in her breast. Sadly, as she may have insisted to go, her employer’s brother beat her up nd took her valuables such as her mobile phone, her BDO ATM card and other personal belongings. However, they gave her passport and a ticket with a connecting flight to Bahrain and then to Manila.
When they’ve learned about her story, a certain Y.D. Boss who was with her that time handed her KD40 as they knew she will be needing the money to be able to go home to their hometown upon arriving at the Philippine airport.
Gerame hailed from Davao City and had worked in Kuwait for 3 and a half years already.
Isn’t this one of the reasons why Duterte’s declaration of total deployment ban to Kuwait was favored by many?
While Duterte’s bashers are in, many OFWs are going out of Kuwait because of abuse and maltreatment.
It’s time to leave Kuwait, perhaps not by all migrant workers but at least for domestic helpers who are victims of the same. What do you think?
