A Netizen on facebook posted photos of a letter that was suddenly handed to her by a Pinay overseas Filipino worker (OFW), who allegedly suffered from abuse and mistreatment by her employer.
Someone named Bente Otso shared the letter that was given to her at Tala Mall, Saudi Arabia. With the words “help me” written at the very front, the Pinay who identified herself as Norjane Abid detailed her current situation.
“Magandang araw po. Kung sino man po sana mabigyan ko po ng sulat ko sana po matulungan niyo po ako,” Norjane wrote.
The OFW informed that she’s from Lun Padido, Malapatan, Saranggani Province, and is married to someone from Barangay Lam Salome, Tboli, South Cotabato. She has been working in Riyadh for only eight months but has already suffered abuse from her bosses.
“Walong buwan palang po ako dito. Bunibugbog po ako ng aking mga amo at pinagtutulungan po ako ng amo ko.”
Norjane added that her male employer and his sibling raped her and she’s currently three months pregnant.
“Buntis po ako ngayon, tatlong buwan [na] po. Sana po matulungan niyo po ako. Wala po akong cellphone, passport, at ID. Lahat po kunuha po ng amo kong babae.”
She then ended her letter by saying that she currently lives near Granada Mall in Saudi Arabia.
