The Reason For Escaping

An OFW named Sarah Derla recently left her employers. Sarah is working as a household helper in Saudi Arabia. However, one fateful day, she decided to break away from her employer’s house. But before she run away, she left a letter addressed to her employer and her passport.

Based on the letter, she is apologizing to her employers for escaping, even if they are good employers. She revealed that she cannot do her tasks anymore since she is always thinking of her baby back in the Philippines. She also said sorry for taking her pay for this month, even if she did not work for the whole month. The OFW also mentioned getting her baby from her sister and husband.

The said employers are worried because she left her passport. If she has the intentions to go back to the Philippines, she would have taken her passport with her. Without it, she cannot leave Saudi Arabia and it is possible that she might go to jail if she cannot provide any documents to the authorities.
