A jobless Filipina in Abu Dhabi has recently spent her last money on a lottery in the country without knowing that it will change her life forever.
Remedios Bombon has lost her job, housekeeping attendant, due to the effect of Covid-19 in the economy and spent her last money, which was AED50, at the Emirates Lotto last May 16.
She was one of the three people who shared the AED1-million prize at the lotto draw.
Living in Baniyas in Abu Dhabi, Bombon said that the school where she was working has closed due to the novel coronavirus.
At the height of pandemic, apart from losing her permanent job, he has also a paralyzed husband and three children to support in the Philippines.
“I had AED50. This is the last money. I will try. All the numbers I choose is my birthday and my kids’ birthday. I told God only four numbers is enough for me,” Bombon said in a statement.
