With many unfortunate stories of abuse and maltreatment of OFWs circulating on social media, it feels great to know that there are still employers out there who truly care for their employees.
A video posted by Dave JF on Facebook showing a Kuwaiti family crying as they bid farewell to their Filipina domestic helpers had gone viral on social media. Netizens were touched by their gesture and praised them for their genuine care to the OFWs.
The video was originally shared on social media by 2 Filipina OFWs named Estela Nebril Tillo Samorano and Julie French Melo Paglinawan who worked together under the same employer.
In the video, the Kuwaiti family was seen crying while hugging the OFWs as they bid farewell to them after deciding to go back to the Philippines for good.
Estela claimed they were treated well by their employers and had given them all that is due to them as their employees, the labor rights and the basic necessities which they need in order to obtain a comfortable life while working for them.
As of this writing, the video is still earning positive feedbacks for the Kuwaiti family who had extended their concern to the OFWs. They were admired by the netizens because they treated the Estela and Julie as family members and not merely as employees.
With many OFWs leaving abroad to find a greener pasture and be able to provide for the needs of their families, not all are blessed to be working for the kind and considerate employers.
Estela and Julie were lucky indeed to have worked for a Kuwaiti family who considered them a family member regardless of race and nationality.
