A 43-year-old domestic worker has been sent home to the Philippines from Jordan after suffering physical abuse by her female employer for a year that resulted in the Filipino now requiring medical treatment.
In 2015, Victoria Perdagorda went to Jordan to work as a maid. In 2016, her employer started punching and slapping her, GMA News reported.
Perdagorda said that after a few months, the woman started beating her with a metal rod. She could not seek help because her employer had confiscated her mobile phone. The abuse lasted for about a year.
Last November, the beatings became so intense that one day she almost fainted. Her male employer saved her in time and sent her back to the Philippines.
Hans Cacdac, administrator of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration in the Philippines, said medical assistance would be given to Perdagorda and her case had been passed on to the National Bureau of Investigation.
The Department of Foreign Affairs will provide Perdagorda with legal assistance for any possible legal action against her former employer.
Perdagorda will undergo surgery on her jaw and is receiving medical treatment in a hospital in Pasig, a city in Metro Manila.
I know many filipinas are thinking, wow ate left her job. That means, job opening, where to apply?
After hearing such horror stories, why are so many wishing to go work there?
Hindi nman lahat masama kahit saan na lugar mayroon na masamang ugali pa swertehan pag minalas ka yn ang maranasan mo pray na lng na guide ka ni lord always
Stop sending female workers in the middle east.
,,I’m here in Jordan …but my employers are all good with me…tnx god dhil mabbait n tao ang npuntahan ko,, HND lht mg taga rito ay massama..or bk nmn dayuhan din LNG dto ang amo nya, pero tnx god n rin dhil nkauwi xa buhay ..
This is bullshit, why are DHs still willing to go to ME only to be abused by these fuc$ng employers? And why POEA are still sending them in those countries inspite of these problems? It’s because, there are no decent works for them right here in their country. Poor Pinays.
I was in jordan , pero sa awa ng dios mababait naman naging amo ko , ika nga ang pagaabroad swertehan lang at kahit saang lupalop man ng mundo meron at meron parin ang mga mapang abusong mga amo
Dont let that shatana get away from her wrong doings. She should be beaten like she did to her maid.
OK tnx GOD at nakauwi cya ng buhay pero bakit ba nagsusumiksik ang mga kababaihan sa ME gayung dito sa Pinas mismo kailangan ang mga DH. Siempre ang sahod ang sagot…. Think wisely dito ang base pay now ay Php 4000. after 3 months nagiging 5K walang documents needed like PP etc. tapos may placement pa…. at mabigat sa lahat Homesickness na d mababayaran ng salapi… There are agency here na tie up ng agency sa ME at cla ang nagbabago ng contract ng DH kaya d makatanggi iba na umayaw sa trabaho kc sakal cla ang PPs nila hawak ng agency doon tapos kapag naikuha na cla ng employer iyon ang kukuha ng PP nila d cla puede umuwi kapag nakita nila yung situation at ang pagtrato sa kanila ng employer….. sside from that wala namang consular people na bumibisita every month sa mga OFW natin sa bansang iyan at dapat laging alertuhin ang embassy personnel to do visiting from time to time sa bawat lugar n mayroong OFW.. pls do enlighten our OFW about this para maiwasan ang ganito and lagi tau parehistro sa embassy natin sa ibang bansa para malaman kung nasaa kau in times of need makahingi rin kau ng tulong…GOD bless us OFW.
Hindi nga lahat masasama pero almost SA kanila at sadista at paano Kung tumapat ka SA kagaya nya at pinapalo ka Ng bakal anong gagawen mo mam?
I was having a conversation with an embassy staff years ago and he told me "in the beginning we believed that when the dh was being maltreated, the employer was always at fault, after a few years, we found out this is not true all the time,:there are a lot of times when the dh are at fault. Most of the time it is the wife who maltreat the maid for a number of reasons, one of them is having a sexual relationship with the husband or with the son, letting their boyfriends come into the house when everybody is out at work, escaping at night to go to disco, etc.
Araceli Losaria the umalis ka rin
because they don’t have jobs in the Philipines and women are expendable……….
that’s a poor excuse for beating another person……..
Aini Grace Zahara If only to be working as a house helper, they can just work here. There are many young mims looking for yayas. At least they are safe and can go home to their families.
They think their life will change for the better. Unfortunately, it’s for the worse
Herminio Bangeles true. halos lahat sila sa saudi nananakit
Araceli Losaria oo meron ganyan pero may proteksyon ka pa rin.
wala kang laban. kulong ka lang maliban pa sa mga hampas. di pwede tapang mo dun unless kaya mong pumatay at magdusa habang buhay
Sabi nila ay swertihan lang ang trabaho ng DHs sa ME. Ok at naniniwala ako diyan pero paano kung ang matiyempuhan mong amo ay ginugutom ka, pinaplantsa ang katawan, minumulestiya o rape ng among lalaki at pinapatay na pinalitaw na aksidente o suicide. Ok lang ba ito? Hindi swertihan ang trabaho ng DHs sa ME. Kailangang siguruhin na walang maltreating at maayos ang work ng DHs. Huwag mong lokohin ang trabaho mo at huwag ka namang paloko. Pag niloko ka ng first time, tumakas ka na kaagad.
