An overseas Filipino worker is pleading with the Philippine government for assistance after being stuck in an Ethiopian airport for eight days.
The Filipina, who works in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, stated in a “State of the Nation” report that her employer scheduled three connecting flights for her to fly home to the Philippines.
OFW Appeals for Help from Gov’t After being Stranded for 8 Days in Ethiopia Airport
Before landing in the Philippines, the worker will fly from Saudi Arabia via Ethiopia, then to Indonesia and then to Malaysia, GMA News reported.
However, her flight from Ethiopia arrived late in Indonesia, causing her to miss her trip to Malaysia.
This drove her to return to the Ethiopian airport, where she had been stuck for more than a week. Authorities have yet to respond to the OFW’s plea as of this writing.
