A Bagong Bayani in Need: Let’s help Alfred Salmos!
Alfred Salmos suffered serious burns, several of which have hardened into keloids, after being electrocuted at work. An electrician by profession, he was sucked into a 14,000-volts breaker that he was trying to shut down.
For the past two years, an Indonesian worker has been looking after Mang Fred. He could no longer work because of his physical condition. According to the Philippine Consulate in Jeddah, they are now working on the exit clearances of Ka Alfred who has to settle some fees over an impounded car several years ago. The Ople Center is working closely with NGOs in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia such as Patnubay Riyadh and PEBA, on this case.
For those who wish to help OFW Alfred Salmos, please send donations to his sister: Epifania Reem S. Colina c/o BPI Branch in Carmen West Rosales, Pangasinan, Account Number: 0639-0859-29.
