The Philippine Overseas Labor & Office (POLO) of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia has acted on the plight of Lester Jay Domasin, an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) from Cagayan de Oro City whose video showing him in an unstable state of mind went viral in social media.

In its Facebook post, POLO-OWWA stated that they visited Lester at his accommodation together with Mohamad Pilla, a nurse from Al Amal Hospital which is a psychiatric hospital and gave him injection to calm him down. The said office has also coordinated with the company where he works and requested to allow him to go home to the Philippines once he recovers even if his contract is not yet finished. Meanwhile, the company also promised to issue his exit visa today.

It can be recalled that fellow OFWs as well as Lester’s family in Cagayan de Oro requested assistance after his video went viral in social media. Watch these videos below courtesy of Sheman Salom.
