Asking for compassion and help to get back to the Philippines, a crying OFW showed the bruises she got from her cruel employer through an FB video shared on Tambayan ni Berto FB Page.

According to the page’s caption on the video, they are asking the Filipino citizens to take action by sharing it to reach the authorities.

The OFW has not been identified but the video went viral; garnering more than 24K views and 1.3K shares in just five hours.

The netizens, meanwhile, symphatized with the OFW; “Kawawa naman si ate. Bakit ganyan palagi sinasapit ng mga OFW na Pinay,” [She’s so pitiful. How come our OFWs always suffer such fate?] said one of the commenters.

Another netizen advised her to stop crying and call her family, then the Philippine agency by borrowing the video-taker’s phone; asked her to stay calm as doing so would make her think properly, “don’t worry ate ang gobyerno ngayon di ka pababayaan.” [Don’t worry, the present government won’t neglect you.]

Another online user warned families of OFWs; that the video must open their mind that when a person goes abroad it does not mean they have much money, and that their sacrifices should be given importance. “Yan aral yan sa mga abusadong pamilya sa Pinas na akala nila pag umalis ang isang tao sa abroad ang alam nila maraming pera di nila iniisip ang kalagayan nito.”

We are hoping that the OFW in the video would be able to go back to the Philippines soon and be reunited with her family.
