Pinay OFW in Jeddah Edilyn Sarino landed herself in the hospital after an attempt to escape from her abusive employer went wrong.
She went to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia to work as a massage therapist for the disabled son of a man, was shocked to find out that no such son existed. Instead, her employer allegedly forced her to do housework while making her perform intimate massages on him.
In her desire to escape, Sarino climbed out of the third floor of her employer’s home. However, upon finding that the emergency ladder only reached down to the second floor of the building, Sarino said she attempted to jump from the second floor to the roof of a nearby building.
Sarino explained that she was pushed to escape since her employer wanted to marry her, even promising lavish gifts and other favors. But Sarino vehemently refused, adding she merely went to Saudi Arabia to work.
“Pumunta lang naman ako dito para magtrabaho at hindi para asawahin, hindi para bigyan ng kahit ano. [Ang] dami niya kasi ino-offer basta’t tanggapin ko lang daw. Ilang beses na po akong nakikiusap sa kanya na nagpunta lang ako para magtrabaho,” Sarino said.
