A video of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) in Bahrain on 2015 sharing her story on Youtube and asking netizens for help went viral on social media today.
The woman which the Philippine embassy requested to remain anonymous was claiming that she was raped by drug-addicted son of her employer.
She recalled in this 3-minute video, how the alleged drug-addict took advantage of her while she was busy doing chores. In her attempt to resist, she received a beating on her legs and thighs.
According to the Pinay, she could not tell anyone about the incident because the man threatened to kill her and bury her in the desert if anyone finds out about the attempt.
"Yung anak ng amo ko ginalaw ako. Tapos nagsumbong ako sa amo ko kagabi. Bakit daw di ko agad sinabi? Natatakot akong magsalita kasi pagkatapos akong galawin ng anak niya pinagbantaan ako na kapag magsumbong daw ako dadalin daw niya ako sa disyerto papatayin at ibabaon niya ako doon," she said.
"Sabi ko paano ko matatapos ang kontrata nasa peligro na yung buhay ko? Paano kung mabuntis ako? Sabi niya pagkatapos ng isang linggo ipapa-check kita. Kung buntis, ka ipapatanggal ko at pauuwiin kita."
Fortunately however, the incident that transpired almost two years ago was properly dealt with by the Philippine Embassy.
Upon receiving reports, the Embassy was able to locate the woman with the help of her local placement agency. She was then rescued and accompanied as she filed cases.
