A Filipina in the United Arab Emirates is pleading to be rescued because her employer continuously treats her badly.

With eyes swollen from crying, Jhen Ashley expresses her concern regarding the bad behavior of her employer. Her employer hurts her physically and she couldn’t do anything about it.

According to Ashley who gathered all her courage to post a video regarding her recent encounter with her employer, the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi is very far from the residence of her employer.

Instead, she thought of posting a video on Facebook to gather as much help as possible. In another post, Ashley said that she is starting to lose hope because no one seems to help her. She mentioned taking her own life to end all her sufferings.

Just like any other OFWs asking for help, Ashley cannot expect help to arrive as soon as possible. This is the sad truth that needs to be considered before flying to another country to work as a domestic helper, specifically, because they are more prone to bad treatment especially in Gulf countries.

One successful OFW once said that if you have other skills, it is better to enhance it rather than to work as a domestic helper as they are more prone to bad treatment.
