Gov. Umali’s radio program helps 3 maltreated OFWs to return home


Three overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), who were allegedly maltreated by their employers, were able to return home after the assistance given to them through the radio program of Nueva Ecija Gov. Czarina “Cherry” D. Umali.

The Malasakit OFW Help Desk program became instrumental for the safe return of Cherrylyn Malicdem of Belen, Gen. Natividad, Nueva Ecija and Jessica Dela Cruz of Sta. Arcadia, Cabanatuan City.

According to the local government, they failed to finish their contract due to their Arab employers’ alleged violations of the agreement and violence allegedly committed against them.

Meanwhile, Umali’s program also was able to assist Cherry Ortega of Gen. Tinio, Nueva Ecija to return home even if she was not able to finish her contract.

Ortega got sick allegedly due to the maltreatment of her employer.

“Ang tatlong OFW ay ilan lamang sila sa hanay ng mga OFW na natulungan ng programa ng ating Gobernadora,” the local government said.
