An overseas Filipino worker in Saudi Arabia has died due to cancer without even personally seeing her family back home.
As posted by community page Bong – Ka OFW, Marcela worked abroad to help her family by providing them a better life.
She was admitted to a hospital after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. While she was battling the deadly disease, a Filipino group was there to support her.
The group, Kaagapay Ako ng Bawat OFW, will help her to have her body repatriated to her family in the Philippines.
Marcela was supposed to go back to the Philippines while she was recuperating but the process took time. In order for her to go home, she needed to occupy at least six airplane seats since she couldn’t sit anymore and needed to lay down all throughout the entire flight.
She needed SAR30,000 or approximately P388,759 for her plane ticket through the Philippine Airline.
Days went by, Marcela’s health has deteriorated.
