25 August 2019

By Vir B. Lumicao

A third Filipino domestic worker is reported to have died within this month, apparently of cancer.

Mylin Delizo, 48, from San Jose City, Nueva Ecija, was found dead by her employer in Lai Chi Kok in the morning of Aug 19, according to the deceased’s nephew Jonathan.

“Kutob lang po ng amo niya (na cancer ang ikinamatay) kasi biglaan daw po ang pagpayat ng Tita ko, medyo naglagas daw po kasi ang buhok niya,” said the nephew, who had been in touch by phone with the employer.

It was not immediately clear if she had been diagnosed of having cancer, and if she did, if she received treatment for the disease.

The coroner’s report on the cause of death is still being awaited by Delizo’s family.
She was the third Filipina domestic worker to have died in Hong Kong within 10 days this month.

On Aug 12, Milagrosa M. Aligaen, 63, who had worked in Hong Kong for 29 years, was found dead on her bed in her employer’s house in Shaukeiwan, apparently due to heatstroke.

On Aug 22, Imelda Bartolome, 50, who worked in Mei Foo, died in hospital of a heart attack. She came from Naguilian, Isabela.
Delizo, who worked for a family on Lai Chi Kok Road, Kowloon, came to Hong Kong in 1998 and had been supporting her mother, said her nephew. She was married but had no children.

Her family learned only about her death when Hong Kong police used her cellphone to call the last telephone number that she had dialed. It turned out to belong to Jonathan's younger sister who lives in Singapore.

Jonathan said that on hearing the tragic news, he went to the Department of Foreign Affairs regional office in San Fernando, Pampanga, to report the death and file a claim for his aunt’s remains. The DFA relayed the request to the Consulate in Hong Kong.
On hearing of her daughter’s death, Delizo’s 79-year-old mother has reportedly been crying frequently.

“Nadudurog ang puso ko na makitang umiiyak si Lola dahil gustong-gusto nang maiuwi rito ang bangkay ni Tita,” the nephew said.

Delizo’s family is working with her employer to get her remains sent home as soon as possible.
