Pinay domestic helper tries to escape employers, jumps from a building in Kuwait

  • OFW from Kuwait jumped from the third floor of a building just to escape her employers.
  • The government has instructed OWWA to provide assistance and help to the injured domestic helper.

On May 2018, the Philippines and Kuwiat signed a Memorandum of Agreement on the Employment of Domestic Workers. It was expected to improve the working conditions of Filipino helpers in Kuwait.

In spite of the existence of the MOA, there are still instances when Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), especially the domestic helpers, are not treated with respect in their workplace.

This is proven by a Pinay domestic helper who recently jumped from the third floor of a building just to escape from her employers.

The 28-year-old OFW named Gina Agustin Aguilar, is from Kabacan, North Cotabato. She left behind two children just to work in Kalha, Kuwait.

Aguilar expected a chance to finally give her children a comfortable life, however, it all disappeared as she jumped from the building she’s working from.

It resulted to her ending up with four broken ribs, a broken heel, and a spinal injury.

Aguilar was admitted to the Amiri Hospital in Kuwait City to receive treatments and to undergo surgery. The Filipino community in the area is currently giving her the assistance she needs.

An OFW named Jovelyn Nobleza shared the young mother’s story on her Facebook account and helped her ask for help from the government.

Aguilar’s agency immediately ordered them to take down the videos but Nobleza ignored the instructions. She was also prohibited to show her face to the media.

The story reached the Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go and Department of Labor and Employment Secretary Silvestre Bello III.

In a report by, it was said that Bello immediately ordered the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) to provide the help that the injured OFW needs.
