Ruby and Rose have been serving for a number of years and wish they could leave their occupations and return to the Philippines. The relationship with them began to shift after that.

“Binubulyawan kami diyan sa labas. Kahit hindi kaya, kinakaya na lang. Pero talgang suko na ako. Gusto ko na umuwi. Ito’y nilihim ko lang sa pamilya ko pero hindi ko na talaga nalihim,” he said.

Ruby want to return to the Philippines to be with her family due to her age and physical condition. Rose surreptitiously delivered food to Ruby when she was imprisoned by her boss. However, Rose was apprehended, and her boss incarcerated her as well.

Rose mentioned that she has an ulcer as a result of their employer’s failure to feed them on time. They proceeded to the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Kuwait and called Ruby’s employer, according to Ruby’s sister.

Ruby’s supervisor, on the other hand, grew increasingly stricter and angrier. The two OFWs can no longer be contacted after that.

The Philippine Embassy in Kuwait has been alerted about Ruby’s and two other Filipinas’ condition, according to the Undersecretary for Migrant Affairs, and action is being taken. Kuwait and the Philippines will sign a memorandum of understanding in 2018 to protect and safeguard OFWs in the Middle East.
