Pinays Seek Help from #RaffyTulfoinAction
These household workers have gone abroad while hoping to provide a better life for their families back home. However, sometimes we cannot predict who our employers are and how they will treat us. If you’re lucky, you will have employers who are kind and generous, however you might also be hired by employers who are prone to maltreatment of their employees.
Such are the cases of these Pinays who have sought help to get away from the abuse that they’ve received from their bosses.
