Recently, a Pinay OFW in Riyadh is asking for help after she suffered maltreatment in her employer at the same time, did not receive a for three months now.

A Facebook user Beth Ayunan posted the video last March 1 of the Pinay OFW name Norjana Guinang Dianda working in Al Saud St, Al-Azhar District City of Gulf. She is an OFW from Malapatan, Sarangani Province.


Here's the video

The said OFW is pleading for help due to maltreatment, non-payment of salary and physical abuse from the father of her employer who she said punch her on her head while the wife of employer constantly beat her.



Here's another story of abuse and maltreatment of an OFW in Kuwait.

Before Ermalyn Banayado was rescued and brought into OFW shelter in POLO-OWWA in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, she suffers a horrible experience in the hand of her employer's brother.

IN TV 5's Aksyon interview to Banayado, she narrates the incident.

She said the brother of her employer was asking for a glass of water and when she went into the kitchen to get, she noticed that the man followed her.

Banayado shared that she was in shock when she found the man is already in front of her. He then offered her an iPhone 7 in exchange for sexual intercourse, but Banayado said she immediately refused to accept the offer.

Because of this, the suspect became angry and beat her and attempted to rape her. She was able to escape, ran to her room and lock it up. She said, he tried to reach out the Philippine embassy in Riyadh, but no one came for her.


Accordingly, her employer accompanies her to Philippine authorities and eventually got rescued.She is now waiting for her repatriation.


The above-mentioned stories is a proof that working abroad is not easy especially for those who work as domestic helpers in Middle East countries. We hear countless stories of maltreatment and even death of OFWs due to abuse. 

So if you are considering working abroad, you must think it carefully. Being an OFW does not just means, more money or more "pasalubong" but also it means homesickness, maltreatment, and non-payment of salaries to some.
