Kuwaiti woman hated President Duterte, assaults Pinay DH



Following President Duterte’s decision on February to ban further deployment of Filipinos to work in Kuwait, at least 54,000 new jobs are at stake including the most widely common profession a PINAY could ever deal with – a DOMESTIC HELPER.
Kuwaiti is home to at least 250,000 Filipinos mostly comprised of women, employed as maids or Domestic Helpers.
Many don’t realize that employment in Gulf states, Kuwaiti included, must adhere under the Kafala (Sponsorship) System, giving the employers FULL control over the worker’s stay in the country including the right to keep their passports on the duration of their employment.




Undoubtedly, there are many of those who take full advantage of this ‘system’ leaving our fellow Filipinos vulnerable to abuse, exploitation or even death.

On Ben Tulfo’s recent BITAG segment, an OFW, by the name of Annabelle Badong is complaining about the rudeness and maltreatment she is now experiencing from her Kuwaiti employer.




According to Badong, her employer’s behavior has altered dramatically towards her after President Duterte declared a deployment ban to Kuwait to regulate the number of Pinays working as Domestic Helpers, following the death of an OFW found in a freezer at an abandoned apartment, among others.

Ben Tulfo narrates that Badong sought the help from her aunt, Marita Arellano in the Philippines when she began to dodge physical harm from her Kuwaiti employer, believed to be female, with threats to having her cellphone confiscated so that she could no longer communicate with her family.




Arellano says there is little to almost no chance for her niece to escape since she’s been strictly confined inside the employer’s residence.

Ben Tulfo mocked at Ortiz Agency and Employment Services – the Recruitment Agency responsible for Badong’s employment by not having to participate in providing any necessary assistance to administer safety to their recruits and called out the attention of DOLE and POEA to take immediate action regarding this matter.
