We are not unaware of the suffering and sacrifice every OFW braves everyday of their lives outside the Philippines. They slave off far from their loved ones. Their only solace remains in the fact that at least, they are able to effectively provide for their loved ones back at home.
Corazon Uyaw, an OFW in Kuwait, surely had these things in mind when she flew to the distant country, away from her family and friends. After 14 long years in Kuwait, she is finally coming home. However, what she allegedly experienced at the hands of her employers in Kuwait doesn’t make any of her sacrifices worth it.
See, according to Nanay Corazon, she got sent away by her employers without paying for her services over the past 14 years.
The domestic helper apparently asked for her passport as she wanted to come home already. She informed her employers that she is already experiencing numerous pains and aches on her body, which is why she would prefer to come back home.
The employers of this hardworking woman refused to hand over her passport at first. When she insisted to get her passport back, they reportedly told her they didn’t have the money to pay for her years in service.
Fortunately, Nanay Corazon was still able to book her flight back to the Philippines. It’s just really heartbreaking that she doesn’t even have a single penny to show for the whole time she struggled as an OFW in Kuwait.
