An OFW kindly asks for help to inform her family that she doesn’t have any means of contact because her employer confiscates her phone.
A concerned netizen, Marjhoerry Manalo, posted a situation of a fellow Overseas Filipino worker whom she met at the mall in Abu Dhabi, Deerfields mall. According to Manalo, the OFW approached her and asked for help to contact her son, Siejo Soco (Facebook account name) in the Philippines and inform him that she has no means of contact, mobile phone, because it was confiscated by her employer.
Moreover, the OFW told Manalo that she hasn’t seen nor touch her salary. She has no idea either if it is being sent to her son in the Philippines because her employer hasn’t shown her receipt as proof.
na meet ko cya sa isang mall dito sa abu dhabi (deerfields mall).. humingi ng tulong para makontak ang kanyang anak na si siejo soco (fb name) na nasa pinas para ipaalam na wala cyang hawak na cp dahil kinuha ng kanyang amo., at ang kanyang sweldo ay ndi rin ipinapahawak sa kanya, ndi rin nya alam kung ipinapadala nga ba ng kanyang madam sa pinas ang kanyang pera dahil wala namang resibo na ibinibigay sa kanya..
To the relatives of the OFW, she asks that you contact the person who recruited her in the Philippines and asked that person to talk with the agent in UAE so that they can take action concerning her situation.
para sa mga kamag anak:gusto sana nya na kontakin nyo yung nag recruit sa kanya jan sa pinas.,para kausapin ung agent d2 sa UAE at para makuha na cya sa kanyang amo,.wala cyang naibigay na contact numbers..ndi daw nya saulado..
One Facebook Netizen who seems to know the OFW and the family commented to the post and asked if the OFW is being maltreated by her employer. She said that there’s no problem with her salary as it is monthly sent to her son.
And Manalo answered that the time she talked to the OFW, the latter said that she’s not being abused by her employer.
