Another OFW becomes a victim of slavery in Saudi Arabia. Her son is appealing for help from the public through social media.
In a recent post of Facebook user Harv’zEscobido Catingub, he claimed that her mother is suffering from the hands of abusive employers in Saudi Arabia. He identified her mother as Geraldine Lumales. She is being forced to work jobs that are not suited for her. Aside from that, she was not given salary for four months.
“Sa nakakakilala kay GERALDINE LUMALES please po tulongan nyo po siy hindi dapat nya trabaho pinanatrabaho sa kanya at tsaka wala syang sahod 4 months na inutangan pa sya ng kanyang amo. Please po tulongan nyo mama ko..”
Catingub is pleading for some help so her mother can go home to the Philippines as soon as possible.
