An Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) resorted to scavenging food from the trash after spending 10 months in Saudi Arabia without salary.
To sustain his daily food needs, a Filipino in Dammam deciding to seek food from the trash after he was left without salary for 10 long months.
In the video, the OFW can be seen searching for food on the sideways hoping to find something edible. A group of men approached the OFW and offered some food to eat. It is then that a video was captured and posted online in hopes of gathering some help from kind-hearted people and to tap the designated government agencies as well.
A lot of Filipinos from different parts of the world lost their jobs as the economic recession take its peak due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is very difficult to find jobs nowadays, much more for Filipinos whose companies are already experiencing financial problems even before the pandemic took place.
The loss of jobs resulted in Filipino workers returning to the Philippines and getting themselves tested of the COVID-19. There is no time frame as to when this pandemic will end. Expectedly, OFWs are the ones who will suffer from this economic crisis.
There are still no updates if the OFW in Dammam already received the much-needed help.
