One Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) once said that being a domestic helper makes you more prone to bad-treatment. This can be true as we have seen dozens of Filipina domestic helpers who have suffered so much in the hands of their employers.
For two years, Rea Jimenez has gone through different physical hurting perpetrated by her employer in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. However, she cannot surrender her dreams of giving a brighter future for her children. She decided to continue despite the terrible things that her employer did to her.
Her body is full of bruises. In fact, it became numb because of all the beatings she received. Bruises are visible on her face. Her back was made like a punching bag because it was covered with bruises.
A miracle can happen. As Rea believes in it, the miracle came her way. She was allowed by her employers to return to the Philippines alive. Though with lots of bruises and no salary from June to September, the OFW is still thankful because she is alive.
September 15, 2019, Rea returned to the Philippines looking pitiful due to all those bruises. Now, she wants justice to be served. She wants her previous employers to be held accountable over all the things that she had gone through.
Weng Wen Estacio, who posted the images of Rea appealed for help from RaffyTulfo, the TV personality famous for showering good deeds to OFWs.
