- A photo of an OFW in Singapore sleeping on the floor of a corridor went viral
- It was alleged that she was forced to sleep there by her employers while they were away having a vacation
- Netizens were enraged by the alleged abuse caught on camera
There have been a lot of reports of overseas Filipino workers suffering different kinds of abuse from their employers. This photo allegedly shows an example of that.
KAMI obtained the photo from the Facebook page called Filipinos in Singapore via Kwentong OFW.
The photo shows a Filipina domestic helper sleeping on the floor of the hallway of his employers’ apartment.
According to her fellow OFW who shared the photo, the maid was forced to sleep there because her employers did not want her to stay inside the flat while they were spending their vacation away from the house.
They also allegedly did not give her an allowance so that she could rent a room for herself during their vacation.
Netizens were extremely enraged by the alleged abuse of the OFW.
“Ministry of Manpower should step in and permanently banned this family from having a domestic helper , violating basic humanity which was not provided.”
“This type of treatment to another human being is just despicable and deplorable .. she should either go her agency to seek assistance or go MOM to report!”
“This is downright human right abuse. The employer needs to get arrested and jailed. We have come too long and hard to have people behaving like this.”
KAMI wants to remind our beloved OFWs to learn their rights as employees and to know how to report and who to report to in case they experience abuse and maltreatment.
