A 65-year-old Filipino female domestic helper passed away in a hospital in Tsuen Wan on the evening of Sept 6 due to aneurysm, the Consulate confirmed on Sunday.

Mena D. Avecilla, from Alaminos, Laguna, reportedly collapsed in her employer’s house and was already comatose when rushed to Yan Chai Hospital in Tsuen Wan.

A migrant volunteer at the Philippine Overseas Labor Office, Bebs Leonardo, said she learned about the death from a sister of the deceased, Rosenely Cristobal of the Laguna Workers Association, or LAWA.

Cristobal was seeking help in contacting the Consulate to report the death of Avecilla, and Leonardo was able to get the message through to ATN and to the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration.


On Sunday, the son of Avecilla’s employer and her sister went to the Consulate’s assistance to nationals section to report the death. ATN officer Danny Baldon said the employer’s son is now working on the repatriation as his mother is now living in Canada.

A son of Avecilla who works in Saudi Arabia will be arriving this week and help in securing the documentation process, Baldon added.
The employer’s son reportedly told ATN that Avecilla, who had worked for his family since he was a child, suffered from an unspecified ailment and was taking daily maintenance medicine.- Vir B. Lumicao
