Many of us have heard accidents, circumstances, tragedies and many more from our fellow OFWs who are working out of the country to support their family. It’s a common occurrence, we hear news in the television and it’s all about negative situations these OFWS face in their daily lives. However, we still hope that every bad situation can turn out to be good.

Check out the video from GMA News Balitanghali below:

The incident happened after Riza was preparing her employer’s child to go to school and her co-worker named Jasmin found her lying unconsciously on the ground. Fortunately, Celine Lacouture (Riza’s employer) arrived home in time. Celine’s children were right next to her while Riza was in her arms dying and while deciding what to do next. She thought of protecting her children first but she decided that Riza needed the help more.

Riza had been brought to the hospital and was treated with her seizure and eventually recovered herself in a short period of time.

Celine and her husband had thought about the expenses on how they can go about helping their Riza. And the couple did not hesitate in aiding their helper especially her life is more important.

The first phase of the operation cost Singapore $100,000 almost 4M PHP.

“I thought she was dying in my arms right in front of me and my children were just next to me. As a mother I wanted to protect my kids but I have to save a life.” Celine says in an interview with GMA News.

“My husband and I decided since we’re still young we can still make money, but we have to save a life that is the most important thing.”  Celine added.

Riza expressed how thankful she was to her employers for helping her. She was also prayed to God to give her strength because she still needs to help her parents and siblings at home.

There were 3 phases of the operation and there’s still pending balance amounting to Singapore $77,000 in the hospital. She’s seeking help in resolving her bills and medications.
