Filipina women struggle to fight homesickness as they await for their repatriation after experiencing bad treatment by their employers.
A group of Filipina inside a room at a shelter in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia is asking for help for their repatriation that is taking so long to happen.
In the video which was posted online, a woman can be seen crying in front of the camera while other Filipina inside the room started to cry as they are having the same problem – they are losing hope that they can still return to the Philippines and be with their family and loved ones.
One Filipina also mentioned that the mobile phone that they use to communicate with their family and a tool to relieve their stress will soon be taken away.
They particularly mentioned President Duterte for help before someone from their batch takes away her life because of depression and homesickness.
Their time of stay inside the shelter was not mentioned, however, it is evident that they are experiencing stress and depression as one OFW breaks down and cried hurtfully thinking of their current situation.
The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh is yet to comment on the video. These OFWs are mostly victims of bad-treatment and illegal recruitment.
To: Philippine Embassy Riyadh Paki tulungan naman po itong mga OFWSila yong mga kababayan natin na hindi pinalad sa mga amu nila..nakikiusap na sana matulungan sila ng pamahalaan natin at mabigyan ng pagkakataon na makasama ang pamilya at mga anak nila ..sa isang share nyo lng malaking tulong na ito para sa kanila na maipaabot ang kanilang hinaing sa pamahalaan natin…kasalukuyan salang nasa shelter al khobar mahigit 80+ na kababayan natin ang umaasa na makauwi sila…maraming salamat po……….Ang video na to pinasa sa skin September 14,2019
