VIRAL: Abuse on OFW caught on video

A video that shows a female overseas Filipino worker, believed to be a domestic helper, being abused by her employer is making rounds online.


Facebook user Anthony Salcedo Beltran sought help from OFWs saying "to all overseas contract workers please share this to all your friends and co workers and report this to the Philippine overseas employment agency and help this person."

He did not provide the identity of the Filipina maid as well as the name and address of her employer.

Beltran's profile, however, shows that he is working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia so it is assumed that the video originated from there.

In the 34-second clip, the domestic helper is seen being kicked and hit with a white stick by a middle eastern man.

She is screaming in pain and appears to be badly hurt. At one point she uttered "tabang," a Bisaya word for "help."

to all overseas contract workers please share this to all your friends and co workers and report this to the Philippine overseas employment agency and help this person .

The video footage already garnered more than 3 million views since it was posted on May 6.

It's unclear if Philippine authorities have already taken action on her case.
