Hearing sad news about our Overseas Filipino Workers, especially those working as domestic helpers, suffering from abuse in the Middle East is devastating and heart wrecking. A lot of our fellow Filipino workers are wishing to give their families a better life, but it turns out that they can no longer give that after their lives are ruined in the hands of their abusive employers.
A lot of our kababayans are suffering from certain conditions and diseases without proper medication: not only because they don’t have money to pay for the hospital bills but also because their employers are not allowing them to go out of their house. This is exactly what a domestic helper is experiencing in Rabya, Kuwait.
Suffering From an Unknown Disease
Another OFW shared the suffering that Leeain Flora Villador Bayona is experiencing in Kuwait. She is trying to call out the domestic helper’s agency, Asia World Recruitment Agency, to go to the employer’s house, Bader Mubarak Salem Bohadlak Alrasheedi at Phase 3, Street 32, House 24, Rabya, Kuwait, and save the OFW.
The video taken by Leeain shows her spewing blood. According to her, she wants to go home to the Philippines as soon as possible because of her current situation. She can no longer work and her body cannot function the same way it used to.
Employer Refuses to Help
Unfortunately, she tried telling her employer about her current situation but he doesn’t allow her to go out of the house. She lacks energy as well since her employer limits the food that she is eating.
The person also added that it’s been two days since they last contacted the OFW.

It is still unclear what happened to the domestic helper, but if she will be taken to the hospital immediately, she can be examined and given proper medication. We hope that her agency and the government can do something to get her out of her employer’s house.
