The family of 27-year-old overseas Filipino worker (OFW) Aljun Andrade cried foul over his recent mishap in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The unseemly incident happened just in front of the company where Aljun works at.
According to ABS-CBN, Aljun fell into a coma after unknown suspects battered him and left him unconscious on the street at around 10:00 PM on Sunday, July 1. For this reason, his relatives are now seeking justice for his plight.
“Nananawagan po ako at humihingi ng tulong sa lahat lahat, lalong-lalo na sa mga kababayan natin sana po ipinalangin niyo po ang kapatid ko. Sa lahat po ng tumutulong sa amin lalo na sa kapatid kong si Aljun Andrade, taus-puso kaming nagpapasalamat sa inyo kahit hindi namin kayo kilala, tumutulong kayo.”

On the day of the unfortunate incident, Aljun was reportedly asking for monetary help from his acquaintances in Riyadh. This was because a relative of his in the Philippines was also hospitalized after being involved in a road accident. He was brought to the ICU following the misfortune.
Furthermore, his sister shared in the interview how selfless Aljun is when it comes to his family’s necessities.
“Si Aljun bilang kapatid, kahit walang-wala siya basta meron si ate niya, meron yung kapatid, meron yung pamangkin, napakabait n’yan na kapatid. Siya lang inaasahan namin na aahon sa hirap. Hindi niya kami pinapabayaan halos lahat ng sahod niya pinapadala niya dito.”

“We promised everyone that the embassy will provide the necessary information with the consent of the family. We just hope and pray that Aljun’s condition will significantly improve in the next few days.”
