The woman in the video was identified as Maria Conception Torress Estrella. She is currently working as a domestic helper in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Based on Maria’s request, she needed more help as she’s not getting any better from the medications that she has received.
Aside from her health condition, she said that her employer does not spend more for her and has made her even more worried about what may come of her.
She pleads to go back home in the Philippines. Maria said “Please help me get back home, I want to save my left eye, this is the second time that it has happened. This initially started from my right eye, where I was struggling to see clearly, and now my left eye is affected. My employer does not allow me to go back home, please help me.”.
Maria’s last wish is just to go back home. Her employer does not want her to repatriate and wanted to keep her to continue to work despite her condition.
