OFW abused in Saudi seeks help through Facebook

An overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Saudi Arabia is seeking help through social media so she can reach the Philippine authorities and go home.


The Facebook page Pinoy Viral Videos identified her as Marisa Magsucang, who works as a domestic helper in Hail City. She is from Mindanao and was hired by Ryza Manpower International Services in Las Piñas, the post read.


Magsucang reportedly experienced various kinds of abuse—beaten up, hit in the head, deprived of food, received no pay—in the hands of her employer.

She escaped and was dropped off by a taxi at King Khalid University Hospital where Filipina nurses helped her. As of Monday, March 9, the abused OFW was admitted in room number 5 of the surgical ward.

Magsucang's contact number is +966532496198, according to the post. It's unclear if the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh already knew of her situation.
