Ang isang Filipina domestic worker sa Riyadh, Saudi Arabia ang nagpost sa social media upang humingi ng tulong matapos siyang sapilitang patrabahuhin ng kanyang employer sa kabila ng pagkakaroon ng kakatapos na operasyon sa appendectomy.

Ang Facebook user na si Meriam Armeñia Mendoza ay nag-post ng isang video ni Emy Francisco, isang domestic worker sa Riyadh, na humihingi ng tulong upang ma-rescue matapos siyang sapilitang patrabahuhin pagkatapos sumailalim sa operasyon para sa appendicitis, iniulat ng Kwentong OFW.

Sinabi ni Francisco sa video na natatakot siya sa mga komplikasyon na maaaring lumitaw kung patuloy siyang magtatrabaho habang bumabawi mula sa operasyon. Ipinakita pa ng domestic worker ang peklat mula sa kanyang operasyon upang patunayan na siya ay sumailalim sa operasyon.

Sinasabi ng Filipina na hindi sya pinapayagan ng kanyang employer na bumalik siya sa Pilipinas at ngayon ay nagsusumamo para sa tulong upang makabalik sa Pilipinas. Hinihiling din niya ang mga taong nakakakilala sa kanya na ipaabot sa kanyang pamilya at ipaalam sa kanila ang kanyang kaso sa mga ahensya ng gobyerno sa Pilipinas.

Ang ilang mga online observers ay kritikal kung paano tinatrato ang Filipina ng kanyang employer. Gayunpaman ang iba ay may opinyon na ang Filipina ay dapat magpasalamat sa kanyang employer sa pagbibigay sa kanya ng tulong medikal, at nagpapasalamat na hindi siya inabuso.
