A sister of a mistreated domestic worker, calls out the sister’s recruitment agency to take action, and save her sister.
According to Leslie Muhammad Emarati, her sister, Son Jhuann is being mistreated by her employer and is now getting sick. On a conversation posted by Leslie, Jhuann mentioned that her employer gets angry with her every day with no apparent reason. She also said that they’re in Makkah, Saudi and she’s the one who’s paying for her foods, she also sleeps on the cold floor.
The recruitment agency, Bobstar International, Recruitment Agency Inc., noticed Leslie’s post and answer it.
On their defense, the recruitment agency said that they’re open to any concerns about their OFWs. And that the abused should ask help directly from them as POEA, OWWA, and Raffy Tulfo will still coordinate with them to verify the OFWs concern before they decide what to do next.
“Bukas po ang agency ng Bobstar Intl Recruitment Agency para sa mga concern ng napaalis na OFW, kung nakakapag video call po sya at message sa ibang tao, bakit po hindi cia nag message sa Bobstar,. Base sa chat nya sa inyo cia nabili ng pag kain at ng nasa makkah sila sa sahig cia matutulog (hindi sila permanente sa makkah) kung problema pagkain at higaan pwede naman kausapin amo para maayos kung may sakit ay ipapagamot kung fit to work hindi kailangan umuwi pag kailangan tulong direkta humingi ng assistance sa agency para marinig mismo sa kanya yung totoong hinaing nya at matugunan ng tama
ang poea, owwa at si Raffy Tulfo hindi sila ang magpapauwi sa ofw, tatawagan pa rin nila ang agency para sa concern ng ofw. kaya po direkta kayo makipag usap sa agency. Sumasagot po kami sa messengen mon-fri 10am-5pm,” comment Bobstar Agency’s Page admin.
Leslie has already talked with the local agency and that the foreign agency in Saudi had already been informed about her sister’s situation.
