OFW in Dammam accuses employer of throwing hot water at her


A Filipino worker in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, is appealing for help after her employer allegedly threw boiling water at her, a report on Unang Balita said Monday.

Gealyn Tumalip-Gavanes, 24, has been working in Saudi Arabia for only two months but has already experienced abuse from her employer.

Aside from throwing hot water at her, Gavanes also accused her employer of physically abusing her.

The report said the incident with the boiling water happened after Gavanes' employer learned that she contacted her agency regarding the alleged abuse.

The OFW is now in a hospital and under the care of the Overseas Welfare Workers Administration. —KBK, GMA News
