Cash aid for kids of deceased ex-DH

08 April 2017

Labor Attaché Jalilo de la Torre receives, on behalf of Lomohan’s
family, the cash donation from Alfredo Palmiery,
president of Society of Hongkong Accredited Recruiters
of the Philippines (Sharp).
A group of Filipino licensed employment agencies sending domestic workers to Hong Kong has donated PhP46,000 as help to the children of deceased former helper Thelma Lomohan.

According to Labor Attaché Jalilo de la Torre, the money will be used to further the education of one of Lomohan’s sons.

He said this during courtesy call on Mar 19 of Alfredo Palmiery, president of Society of Hongkong Accredited Recruiters of the Philippines (Sharp) which made the donation.

“We are planning to use the donation for the vocational education of Lomohan’s son so he could acquire employable skills,” Labatt De la Torre told Palmiery when the latter handed over his group’s cash donation.

The deceased’s younger sister, Cleofe Alvarez, who is an OFW based here, was unable to receive the donation on behalf of the children because she was down with flu.

Lomohan, an asylum-seeker and former domestic helper, died on Jan 26 after overstaying in Hong Kong for 20 years. She passed away at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital following two major brain surgeries after suffering a massive stroke Jan 15.

Palmiery offered to make arrangements with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority for the schooling of the deceased worker’s son.

Alvarez, a domestic worker in Hong Kong, said Lomohan left her four children – two daughters and two sons – with their aunts when she came to work here in 1996, after her husband abandoned them.
She said Lomohan’s eldest child, Yvonne, now in her mid-30s, had also been a domestic helper in Hong Kong but could not return soon because she was nursing her baby.

Lomohan was reportedly buried in a private cemetery in her hometown of Sison, Pangasinan. – Vir B. Lumicao
