OFW Shares Struggles During Ramadan

Arabs are usually generous during the holy month of Ramadan, a month-long prayer and fasting This are the times they are giving "Hadiya" or gift as goodwill to their workers or anyone. When I was working in Kuwait, there were times that a random person will give kinds of stuff like food or money to the street sweepers during Ramadan. The working hours are also shorter than usual allowing more rest time for the workers in companies.

The working hours are also shorter than usual allowing more rest time for the workers in companies.  This story appears to be different from an overseas Filipino worker who works as a household service worker (HSW) in Saudi Arabia.  During this season where others enjoy receiving benefits and freebies from the Arabs, there are others who do not get the same thing. Instead, their workloads increase. Others are not even given adequate food.  OFW Rosemarie Silapan, in a social media post which later taken down, shows a photo of a situation of household workers consuming the excess food of their employers. Due to an issue saying that Silapan grabbed the post from another person, she removed it from her social media wall and posted another photo which reflects the same situation.

In the said photo, after the break of the fasting, while their sponsor finished their meal, the household workers scavenge on the leftovers. It is their only chance of getting full. According to Silapan, they were not given adequate food by their employer.
