After employers drove several Overseas Filipino Workers to suicide, the Philippine government decided to suspend sending workers to Kuwait. This also marked the deadline imposed by President Rodrigo Duterte to the OFWs to go home to the country instead of suffering at the hands of their employers.

Now that the suspect behind the slaying of domestic worker Joanna Demafelis is behind bars, will it already put a stop to the maltreatment of our OFWs, particularly the domestic or household helpers? The percentage might be lower but it may not stop immediately. Other than Kuwait, several Filipinos from other parts of the Middle East like Saudi Arabia are asking for help.

One of them is Carlos Chavez.

What Happened to Our Kababayan?

In a Facebook post shared by OFW CCTV, Carlos Chavez has been working in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. According to him, his employer is not giving him his salary for a year. The concerned OFW who wanted to assist him thought that he is already in the Philippines.

He can walk before but he suffered from the complications of diabetes and the doctors needed to amputate his right leg. After the operation, he can no longer walk and needed to use a wheelchair to move from one place to another.

Since the OFW is not receiving any salary from his employer, his condition might get worse. He needs help to be sent back to the Philippines, especially since he cannot work, given the situation that he has.

Carlos is currently located in Irgah Wadi Hanifa Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, near the house of the King. He came from the province of Pampanga and his wife’s name is Salvie Chavez.

Hopefully, we can help our Kababayan return to his family in the country. Let’s join forces and help bring him back to the Philippines so he can receive proper medical attention.
