Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who are based in Satwa are appealing to the public to help them as their houses were affected by a fire.
The fire has consumed the houses in Al Badaa, Satwa, Dubai.
Several posts of Filipinos are getting viral, asking their kabayans to provide them at least essential stuff.
In a Facebook post by Jyn B. Sanico, he said that the fire has started at 5 am yesterday and most of their belongings have been burnt.
“Kakapalan ko na mukha ko sa inyo para humingi ng tulong. Ngayon lang ako ask ng tulong kasi super need,” he said.
Sanico said that his family needs extra kitchen utensils, pillows, blanket, food, milk and diapers for babies, and used garments.
“At sana Indian food din po para sa mga Indian brothers po natin na nagligtas po ng buhay namin. Malaking tulong po samin at si Lord na po bahala magbalik sa inyo,” he said.
Meanwhile, another Facebook user Virginia Marie Lapinid Buenaventura, thanked people who initially lend a helping hand.
Lapinid, who is celebrating her birthday, also asked her Facebook friends to help a colleague who almost lost everything from the fire.
“Meron po siyang 3-year-old baby boy. They need clothes and other stuff. Kung meron po kayong puwedeng ma-idonate, please let me know. Napakahirap ng sitwasyon ngayon especially pandemic pa,” she said.
