3 OFWs Pleads For Help So That They Can Return Home

Going home and seeing your loved ones waiting for you is the best feeling for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) after years of working in a foreign land.  But this is not a case because there are many OFWs going home sad. But still, they may consider fortunate because they are already here in the Philippines. There are some cases of OFWs who wants to go home but cannot do for some reason.  For example a story of Fernando Apat, a construction worker in Saudi Arabia who is still staying in Saudi for almost five months now after he finished his contract last December 2016.

Going home and seeing your loved ones waiting for you is the best feeling for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) after years of working in a foreign land.

But this is not a case because there are many OFWs going home sad. But still, they may consider fortunate because they are already here in the Philippines. There are some cases of OFWs who wants to go home but cannot do for some reason.

For example a story of Fernando Apat, a construction worker in Saudi Arabia who is still staying in Saudi for almost five months now after he finished his contract last December 2016.


According to ABS-CBN report, El Seif Engineering Contracting Company Ltd declined Apat's request to go home. 

"Ang complaint lang namin, bakit hindi kami pinauwi e tapos naman kami sa kontrata," ani Apat. "Ang nakalagay doon sa kontrata, 24 (months)... with ticket papuntang Pilipinas."

They also try to ask help from their agency in the Philippines but got no response until now.

Apat is one of 50 OFWs from El Seif company that is stranded now in Saudi.

Meanwhile, the OWWA said they are processing documents and money claims of Apat from his company so that he can go home as soon as possible.

"Maikling panahon na lang ang hinihintay, magkakaroon na siya ng exit visa. Most likely within this month at makakauwi na rin siya," said OWWA administrator Hans Cacdac.

The OFW said she already asked help from her agency the Billboard Promotion Inc. but being advised to finished her contract.





In Kuwait, another OFW is hoping she can go home soon and promised not to go abroad again for work.

OFW Grace Saplot said, her employer used to kicked and punched her. She lost weight due to long working hours and her employer does not feed her well.

"Isa lang po talaga ang hiniling ko sa Diyos nung nasa loob ako. Hiling ko lang po talaga makauwi ako ng safe sa pamilya ko, ayos na po ako kahit wala akong pera, kahit wala lahat. At least po buhay ako,"

"Parang ayoko na po. Na-trauma na po ako. Minsan nga po nananaginip pa rin ako kahit nandito ako sa Pilipinas. Napapanaginipan ko pa rin yung amo ko na sinasaktan niya ako," she added.
