The Philippines is home to thousands of overseas workers who are striving to give their families at home better lives. These hardworking Filipinos endure several years of being away from their loved ones and spend hours and hours of work abroad. These workers gamble their life just to secure a better future for their families back in the Philippines.
Life as an Overseas Filipino Worker is never easy. Not all hardworking Pinoys find better fortune in the foreign lands. One of the issues that they are facing is being abused physically, verbally, emotionally, and sexually by their employers. In fact, there are some OFWs who died at the hands of their employers.
