Philippine authorities are trying to rescue a domestic worker who has claimed she was repeatedly sold by a recruitment agency to other households after being mistreated by an employer, only to suffer the same abuses at their hands.

GMA News said the 38-year-old woman, who started working in Saudi Arabia in 2017 to support her three children, had been taken back by her original employer after she was physically mistreated and her agent began to “take advantage” of her vulnerability by selling her to new employers.

The unnamed woman said her latest employer had locked her up in a room for a month with little food, and she suffered bruising from physical abuse. Her sister in the Philippines is seeking help in locating her before she is sold to another employer and becomes difficult to trace. The sister said family members had repeatedly contacted her employment recruiter in the Philippines, but the agency had reportedly closed down.

Hans Leo Cacdac, administrator of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, said the agency was coordinating efforts with the Philippine Embassy in Saudi Arabia and the Philippine Overseas Labor Office to track down the Filipina and rescue her.

  1. I do trust all the concepts you have offered to your post.
    They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts
    are too brief for newbies. May just you please
    extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

  2. When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment
    is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.

    Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from
    that service? Kudos!

  3. Hi there! This blog post could not be written much better!

    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He continually kept talking about this. I most certainly will forward this information to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a great read. Many thanks for sharing!

  4. I do not know whether it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
    It seems like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Thank you

  5. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because
    I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for
    another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  6. I’m gone to say to my little brother, that he should also pay a quick
    visit this webpage on regular basis to take updated from most recent information.

  7. It’s in point of fact a nice and useful piece of info. I’m happy
    that you simply shared this helpful information with us.
    Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
