-Time and again, we come across news of our overseas workers getting maltreated and harassed by their employers
-Some complain of being given unfavorable living conditions, while others suffer worst, being physically abused and battered
-Just when we think we’ve heard all sorts of horror stories from OFWs in foreign countries, along comes this tale of a domestic helper that will make us believe there are still good people out there
While it is common to hear many of our overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) getting maltreated in Middle Eastern countries, there are many untold tales of others who are lucky enough to have kindhearted employers, and bosses who treat them like family.
Such is the case of Might Jorlene Jhore, a domestic helper in Kuwait, who shared a video on her Facebook account.
As can be seen in the clip, her employers - a couple with young children - were preparing to surprise Jorlene on her birthday. They carried around a cake with a lighted candle on the way to Jorlene’s bedroom.
The kids were carrying paper bags containing gifts, while their father, or so it seemed, was the one taking the video.

Jorlene was caught in shock, and she felt like tearing up at the unexpected surprise. She certainly couldn’t believe how her employers could have gone the extra mile to celebrate her special day with her.
Despite looking flustered and fazed, Jorlene felt very thankful and blessed to have experienced such.

KAMI acknowledges that not all OFWs are as lucky. Some experience being beaten and maltreated, while others suffer from starvation and have unhygienic sleeping quarters. Some also get paid far less than what they expect or agreed upon, making their lives very miserable than it already is.
