Pinay Domestic Worker In Kuwait Broke Both Legs After Jumping Off Employer’s House

An OFW- domestic helper in Kuwait went immobilized after breaking both her legs from jumping off employer’s house.

Anne Apostol shared the OFW’s situation in OFW KAMI sa GITNANG SILANGAN (KAPIT-BISIG) ll Facebook group. According to her, the Pinay worker’s name is Merlie Libumfacil from Dipolog City. The name of her agency is Mothersway agency.

Detained by employer

Apostol said that the OFW was being detained by her employer and have no means of contact, cell phone. The reason for her to jump off from the window of her employer’s house. Added that the OFW is suffering from the pain of her injuries as she was only given a pain reliever once. No one is taking care of her in the hospital of Kuwait.

Broke Both Legs

Apostol is hoping that through her post, the OFW can get the immediate help she much needed. And hoping that through sharing, the OFW’s family will be informed of her situation.

“Please pa help. Po…. Kahit share lang para makarating sa kanyang pamilya…
Name: Merlie Libumfacil
Agency: Mothersway
Taga Dipolog daw sya…
NSA hospital sya ngayun dto sa Kuwait
Nabali daw po dalawang paa nya.. Ikinulong kc sya sa kwarto at wala syang cp.. Kaya tumalon sya sa bintana.
Iniinda nya daw ngayun ang subrang sakit dahil isang besses lang daw nakainum ng pain reliever cmula kahapon… Wala kasing tumulong sa kanya sa hospital…

It is still unknown the reason behind the employer’s detainment of the OFW inside their home.

UPDATE:

  1. It is utterly outrageous, indeed criminal to mistreat a domestic helper.. Society should unite in denouncing and bringing to justice perpetrators of mistreatment unto domestic helpers of any nationality.

    1. To be slave abroad ,sexual abuse,treated like animals is due to the non employment of the people who have completed their studies,but we observe that PRC is too too closed to accept philippinos to be employed even there is a vacant some where,PRC and DOLE should automatically employ the citizen without spending a lot of money,prepare strong exams so that they can not succeed to get their job??? .it is known that many people will spend money to make documents for months and years without been employed,it is good to employ directly a person just few weeks after studies.That why we have noticed such cases in the world with HIV spreading.Please employ people as faster as possible, foreigners we know no space for us here in the Philippines, we have tried ,no way ,we have taken others directions to others countries where they need us,and we will help some of Pinoy to get their a Job as engineers

  2. These domestic workers travel to these countries unwillingly but do so as to help their families back home, its hard work and long hours and no social life. Dam the owners of that house. Take them out and stone them to death.

  3. Most Filipina doesn’t know the environment in the middle east. I worked and lived in Saudi Arabia for over 10 years. Most of these employers are like animals, so guess how they treat their employees. These poor workers were often physically, mentally, and sexually abused. The Philippine government should ban sending domestic helpers to most of these middle east countries.

      1. Filipino will do anything for money? Are you sure about that? What nationality are you? Filipino will work for money to mainly support their family so check yourself and correct yourself. I guarantee if you have family to feed, dress, or send to school, you will be out there to look for money too.

  4. Merun din po ako problema sa ate q po sa jeedah nagka sakit po xa t.b tpos pina confine xa sa hospital…una puro nurse tpos pinalitan ng puro arabu…tpos pinag bawaln pa xa pasyalan ng mga pinsan nmin…bawal pa xa gumamit ng cp…as in payat na yung ate q…ang daming turok sa kanya sa likod..

    1. u and your family should know about the reason why they strictly not allowing visitors… in fact even one of your family should there to care…. do justice for those somebody who have power to handle this problem..

  5. I wonder if the Medical team of Phil Embassy visited her? if the Phil Embassy take care of her case? I just sent a msg to Phil embassy medical team and asking them about her situation now? i wonder what Hospital here in kuwait?

    1. Ang cousin q po nasa Dubai nag viral yung video nya d mka salita nabaliw andun daw now sa Philippines consulate ng Dubai nawala lahat documents nya d nmin alam kung Ok kalagayan nyan dun

  6. Since America is quick to denounce Human Rights Violators, why can’t they address complaints like this? They are too busy chasing the death of a non-US citizen in another country because he worked for the US Media. Why don’t the government of those working abroad check on their citizens???

    1. Your comment is retarded and the reason people make fun of filipinos. You have no grasp on the real world. You want to cry about the US not denouncing it? It’s not Thier business…it’s our president who allows this because the ofw remittance is more important than the Filipino.
      Pathetic fuck. Stop blaming other people for the faults of our own country

  7. OWWAAAAAGH or another agency should train OFWs how to outsmart their employers with skillful mental and psychological tricks to avoid having to throw themselves out of a window as a logical recourse.

  8. For several years now I hear about many abused by the Employers but please keep in mind all must do thier part by reporting all bad Employer that should not be allowed to have Domestic workers living at these homes and the All Agenency should be held accountable as well for thier OFW safe haven. New bill introduced protecting the rights of All. Advice to OFW always have an emergency contact number to report all and All Agenency to take these cases seriously while reporting to the PNP and Embassy at the locations of employees.

  9. Dapat i banned yung Kuwait…wag n padalhan ng katulong kahit kelan….limang beses magdasal pero mga demonyo ang ugali….kainis much..

  10. These filipinos have no idea how to behave in a foreign country like saudi and other muslim country . They are expecting the same lifestyle like where they came from , no restrictions of any sort , to much outing with opposite sex , talking freely with strangers and many more . They think if the employers prohibit them from going out of the house is maltreatment then they are mistaken , it s the lifestyle in muslim country to stay most of the time indoors , muslim women go out only with their relatives and with their sons and husbands . It is only permissible to go out with their husband s permission . Life in arab country is so peaceful , because muslim people are discipline and they follow a code of life according to the saying of the holy quran and the hadith of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

    1. If you said life in Muslim countries is peaceful, what happened in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria etc. ? It’s the distorted understanding of peace that the people in most Muslim Countries practiced. No piece in Islam.

    2. These workers are being abused physically and sexually and you seemed to blame the workers?whats wrong with you? They don’t need to be imprison if you think they are not following the rule. Send them back to the Philippines. The employer has no right to abuse them. They might be domestic workers but they are human and should be respected. You should be ashamed of yourself . Some of them are educated more than you are , they are just trying to help the family nd their kids to finish school and may to get a little ahead financially for their old age and in exchange for that you blame them instead of the abusive employer. Open your eyes . Someday you will realize that Pilipinos are good hard working God fearing people and He will protect His people.

  11. But they don’t have a right to maltreated other individual. If they are not satisfied,
    Or happy, why hurting them and not letting them go?

    1. To be slave abroad ,sexual abuse,treated like animals is due to the non employment of the people who have completed their studies,but we observe that PRC is too too closed to accept philippinos to be employed even there is a vacant some where,PRC and DOLE should automatically employ the citizen without spending a lot of money,prepare strong exams so that they can not succeed to get their job??? .it is known that many people will spend money to make documents for months and years without been employed,it is good to employ directly a person just few weeks after studies.That why we have noticed such cases in the world with HIV spreading.Please employ people as faster as possible, foreigners we know no space for us here in the Philippines, we have tried ,no way ,we have taken others directions to others countries where they need us,and we will help some of Pinoy to get their a Job as engineers contractor , we know Pinoy are very intelligent ,why Chinese only are in others countries fine?.

  12. President Duterte, please stop sending domestic helpers to countries like Kuwait or Jeddah Saudi Arabia. Our people now must stay with their families. I thought school is now free and health insurance is free now. Magsitanim na Lang ng mga pagkain at gulay. MAbubuhay naman Basta ang gobyerno ay tutulong.

  13. Dami ng inaabusong ofw doon bkit wla pring natatakot na umalis papunta doon qng mahal nyo ang buhay nyo tiis tiis nlng sa pinas kahit mahirap at wlang mgmamaltrato sau diskarte nalang po mag seminar po tau sa ngtturo ng mga negosyo sa maliit na puhunan

  14. Yes I agree your comment our goverment should control sending domestic helper or should stop sending them to the middle east. So they will not suffer physical abuse by the employer.

    1.

  15. Let me be very “CLEAR” I work and lived in Kuwait. They are the worst people beside Saudi Arabia mistreating these Asian women’s from Philippines. Nothing will be done cause the Philippines government want them to use their money if they get paid to spend it back home if they ever get paid their salary!!! The
    Philippines Embassy is afraid of Kuwaitis and do “NOTHING”. Philippines government will never stop sending OFW worker to Philippines or Saudi Arabia. I “HATE” Kuwaitis period and Sadaam should have took over that country but Bush love oil and many died for that. Therefore Kuwaitis will continue to beat, burn, slap, have sex and impregnate Filipina’s and nothing will done! Thank you Philippines Government!!

  16. I share your sentiments Phillip, i pity the female Filipino ofw working as a maid in these Arab countries. They didn’t know what abuses and suffering awaits them there. If i were the President of the Philippines, i will ban all the agencies from sending ofw maid to Kuwait and UAE. “The Filipino is worth dying for” i quote the words of the late Sen. Ninoy Aquino. I hope our government Leaders would eventually realize this injustice.

  17. You can accuse the Kuwaiti and Saudi people but not the entire Muslim and the Religion of Allah, this is Islam. Islam has nothing to do with their individual barbaric acts. Those who follows the teachings of Islam, they are Muslims and those who disobeyed, they are not and in the day of judgement, surely, these people will suffer the severe torment of their Creator for the unlawful acts they have personally committed not in consonance with the law of God.

  18. If you remove ALL the RED TAPE Procedures and exaggerated agency payments for your OEC certificate, More Philippines can come work in Malta, where they re well treated, the Government has an office for workers complaints and will provide free guidance & assistance even to foreign workers. But due to the long complicated procedures & the exaggerated expenses involved, the Maltese are getting workers from other places, although they were VERY HAPPY to Employ Philippine workers.

  19. If all these abuses are happening then agencies shd be regulated by the responsible government officials and stop them from sending domestic helpers to these countries. I worked in Kuwait’s ministry of health as a hospital professional and I and fellow workers were treated by the ministry with utter respect and protection and generosity, living in government and hospital flats with curfew for our security. In the years We’ve lived there we have met many Kuwaiti families who were all respectable and friendly. It is unfortunate that domestic helpers are sent to shady families, the kind of bad people that one would expect to find in any society. Therefore it is better to stop workers from being sent to private individual families where they are abused behind closed doors and hidden from regulatory Kuwait government agencies that can protect them the way we were protected.
