Saudi Arabia: A tweet coming from a Saudi Arabian caused a lot of rave especially in the Overseas Filipino Worker Community. The message which has been shared more than two thousand times in Twitter since it was posted in March showed a lot of love and gratefulness towards one Filipino domestic helper which has served an Arab family for almost 30 years.
The man responsible for the tweet, Abdulrahman Al Sharhan, was personally taken care of by the Filipino nanny since he was a young boy. Now that the nanny was set to retire and settle in her home country – The Philippines – for good, Al Sharhan did not think twice in announcing his deep appreciation for her years of service to his family to the whole world.
