Pinay OFW in Riyadh Saudi Arabia hot water burns

The 23-year-old young lady, identified as 'Fatma' came to Saudi Arabia to work as a domestic helper. She has been in the foreign land for just two months when the incident happened.

Apparently, the Pinay from Pikit, North Cotabato has been maltreated ever since she started working for the Arab family. She has been denied of salary and proper meals.
Yong mga tirang mga pagkain nila, sabi ng amo kong matanda, itapon ko daw. Ang ginagawa ko lang po, hindi ko itinatapon, iniipon ko, para kung magutom po ako sa pagtatrabaho ko, `yun po ang kinakain ko
Fatma failed to bring her employer's mother coffee immediately. The old woman grabbed a thermos and poured hot water on her.

Worse thing was, Fatma was brought to the hospital six hours after suffering from the burns.

What happened to Fatma shocked the Filipino community in the Kingdom, so much so the keen observing people in the social media networks. Hence, the spread of her photos online since yesterday.

It was a good thing that Fatma was able to secretly give a piece of paper containing her sister's phone number in the Philippines to an attending nurse in the hospital. Only then, her sister made a contact of Fatma's relatives in Riyadh to ask for further help.

Fatma's cousin posted these photos on Facebook.

In an online news article published on Arab News, a relative of Fatma who identified himself as Talib said, the victim had communication issues with her employer.

Fatma asked for help to file cases and seek justice for what has been done to her by her cruel Arab employer.
Please lang po tulungan n'yo ako. Tulungan n'yo po akong makasuhan yong mga amo ko.... Kasi sobrang hirap po `yung ginawa nila sa akin
Fatma is now under the care of the Assistance to Nationals section of the Philippine embassy.
