Every overseas Filipino worker (OFW) believes that having a job abroad will solve all their financial problems. As compared to the salary they can get from working in the Philippines, they can earn much bigger overseas but it takes more sacrifice. There are a number of OFWs especially those who are working as household service workers who suffer inhumane treatment in the hands of their sponsors. Cases of abuse are rampant particularly in the Middle Eastern countries.       Ads  Sponsored Links      Barely a month working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, an OFW was nearly lose her sight from beating by her sponsor.  Lovebella Abcede, during an exclusive interview by GMA news, showed her reddened right eye due to hemorrhage caused by repeated punches from her employer.  According to the OFW, last November, she said to her employer that she wishes to be transferred from another employer after her present employer said that she will be sent home for not following her sponsor's orders. The sponsor suddenly slapped and throw punches on her. Unfortunately, the owner of her agency is also her present sponsor.      Due to the incident, the agency swiftly acted on repatriating her to the Philippines but her employer warned her not to tell anyone about what happened. The agency personnel will also pick her up when she arrives.  On her home to the airport, she asked the driver to bring her to the consulate. She then took her time to report about the incident to the authorities.    Labor Attache Nasser Munder said that they can order the cancellation of the agency's accreditation due to the maltreatment experienced by Abcede.  The OFW was then asked to file complaints about the claiming compensation for the damages due for maltreatment and ill-treatment from her employer.  The OFW is hoping that her sponsor is reprimanded for what happened to her. Abcede is now back home together with her family.

"You know if there is an improvement in public service in the airport, one is that there will be no more inspection for bags that come in." It is a statement from President Rodrigo Duterte following another incident of the alleged baggage pilferage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) that victimizes the passengers especially the overseas Filipino workers (OFW).  The president said that he would prefer minimizing human contacts in checking and screening of the baggage.         Ads  Sponsored Links      President Rodrigo Duterte said Thursday bags of travelers will no longer be opened during airport screening and "human contact" would be minimized.  The President then made a joke about how bringing in contraband like dynamite, bullets, and marijuana would be okay, but that the police and the members of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) would be waiting for them outside the airport.  He also said that there would be no more human contact in airport immigration. By this, he was most probably referring about the newly installed eGates at the airport which is now operational.   he said.  Duterte said that in his years as a  public servant, he has seen how poorly the overseas Filipino workers are being been treated. He recalled one instance where he witnessed an OFW who arrived from Hong Kong with a small TV being charged a fee the worker could not afford.  The President said he nearly got into a fight with the airport personnel over the way the OFW was treated. The president also reiterated that he does not like any form of oppression among the Filipino people, especially on his presence.
