One of the reasons why our website is existing is to help other Filipinos, especially those who are suffering from abuse and maltreatment of their employers abroad. With the number of reported Overseas Filipino Workers who are reporting the unfortunate incidents in their lives in another country, some of them are luckily being rescued from the hands of their current bosses.
If you can still remember the OFW who wants to go home due to pneumonia but her agency is asking him to pay 5,000 Saudi Riyal, we have good news. The news went viral and there were several people who reached out to us to help our poor kababayan.
Good News from our OFW
The migrant worker sent a message to OFW Newsbeat to tell us that his company assisted him with all his needs. A person by the named of Muhammad personally assisted him to get the benefits that he deserves: he followed up with his papers and was promised that he can come back to the Philippines as soon as possible. He personally made sure that all of the documents that he needs are properly followed-up.
With the help of the upper management of his current company, they processed his exit visa so he can seek further medical help from the hospital in the Philippines. Not only that, they also processed his return ticket back to the Philippines.
Further Help From the Company
To help with his finances, the company also provided him with a pocket allowance that he can use for his medication and check-up.
We are happy to know that finally, John can go back to the country and treat his medical condition. We are hoping that he will soon be in better shape.
Good luck John and thank you for letting us know and updating us that you will return to your family soon. Good luck back to our country, kabayan!
