I can't believe tings like this still happen. It is really heartbreaking indeed. While we Filipinos sacrifice just to help our family have a brighter future- bad bosses like them threaten our lives. At least justice was served, the murderers, Kuwait couple gets death for beating and then murdering the Filipina domestic helper. It is really sad how some Filipinos are beaten and treated like animals when they are ding their job well.I just hope everyone would respect others regardless of race and status in life since we are all humans with rights.. http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/World/Story/STIStory_768703.html

I am planning to go Abroad but I am having a feeling that threat of my life is outside my country. I hope our Government provide a Good Assurance to the Filippino outside our country. I hope they provide a more strict yet appealing Rules to their fellow countrymen.

I guess our government is doing everything they can to help Filipinos who want to work overseas.The problem is I guess and will always be is that some of our countrymen don't follow the legal rules and guidelines of our government. Most OFW's who suffered maltreatment from their employers don't pass the legal procedures in gaining employment, but still our government are helping them in case they need assistance.

It's a very sad news for us Filipinos since we only want is earn nice money for a nice job. Unfortunately we also sacrifice for our family from being away from them. Maybe this is also an awakening for our fellow Filipinos that be careful of applying jobs abroad. Before I was also planning to apply some job abroad, but I also realize the pain of being away for my daughters. I hope this news will be a guide to those who still want to have a job away from their family.

Working overseas is really a sacrifice being away from your family, fighting loneliness, new cultures and traditions to adapt with and other things in the place of work or the host country especially if it's your first time. Yes, before departure OFW's were brief and given pre-departure orientation seminars so they would know at least what to expect when they start working. But sad to say some falls to some delinquent or not so good employers. Some chooses to work overseas because they can't find jobs and if have, the earnings are not enough to support their family. Mostly are underpaid doing jobs not related to their degree, so some take their chances in foreign lands.

It's really sad, loneliness and being away from their family is really a sacrifice. But there are some who are not lucky enough to find an employer who are good enough to treat their employee equally like this Filipina. I just hope it won't be repeated.
