Working abroad as an OFW can be difficult as you must have courage to be independent and be cautious at most times. One of our fellow OFWs in Saudi Arabia, utilized a social media website; Facebook to post photos of her and her bloodied hand. The posted photos had gone viral and had reached a lot of views and shares.
The photos were posted by Rosemarie Marcial Santos a few days ago, on the third photo’s caption, she wrote “sa lahat po ng naaawa sakin at gusto aq tulungan maraming salamat po ..sa mga tumatawag sorry diko po masagot tawag nyo kase po andito amo q, nagtatago lang po aq sa CR para makagamit saglit ng cp para maka-communicate po aq sa pamilya ko ..ayaw po kase aq pagamitin ng cp sinisigawan po aq kapag may cp ako hawak ..sana po makauwi pa aq ng maayos ..??? maraming salamat sa mga concern po sa kalagayan ko, takot napo aq matulog dahil bka kapag napikit ang mata ko ulo q nman ang hiwain .. — feeling down.
Pinay in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia Posts Photo Asking for Help after Alleged Stabbing Incident
According to Rosemarie’s post, she wrote that she was so scared. We could see that she’s in pain while expressing her agony. We can sense that she’s also anxious when we read the story she wrote as caption of the photo. She’s seeking help from her family at first and wanted to ask any help she can get, especially that she’s being restricted to use her mobile phone while she’s at work. She wanted to go back to the Philippines.
These photos had gone viral in a few hours and had a lot of reactions from netizens. Many were showing concern, some suggested to pray and stay strong. And some other netizens were helpful by linking pages like Raffy Tulfo’s “Tulfo Action Agad”.
Almost all of the comments were informative, like one concerned netizen gave information about (Philippine Overseas Labor & Office) POLO’s contact information. Aye Ditan who is another concerned person, wrote the current details of the victim and is sharing it through Facebook with the sense of urgency in the hopes of immediate response to rescue Rosemarie.
Currently, she wrote another post as an update of her situation.
