There are currently around 176 runaway housemaids being housed at the embassy’s Filipino Workers Resource Center (FWRC) in Kuwait, where an average of 5 to 10 Filipina housemaids are fleeing their sponsors everyday. The OFW cite non-payment of salaries, verbal abuse and sexual harassment as reasons for fleeing. Some of these Filipinas will return home, while others will stay and have their work visas transferred to other sponsors.
