Camocamo family returns to Capitol, thanks Davide

As a gesture of gratitude, the family of the deceased overseas Filipino worker Lotis Yu-Camocamo returned to the Capitol on Tuesday and handed over a thank you card to Gov. Hilario Davide III.

“Mibalikgyud mi paramagpasalamat sa tabangnigobernador. (We came back here to thank the governor for his help),” said Camocamo’s mother Zenaida, who was escorted by her husband Saturnino.

Camocamo’s widower, Domingo, was also present to express his gratitude to Davide.

It was the first time Davide met Domingo since the latter came home to accompany the remains of his wife from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The Yu family, who hailed from Toledo City, came to the Capitol last Jan. 19 asking help for the repatriation of their daughter’s body.

Since then, the Capitol had provided assistance until Camocamo’s body was brought home on Feb. 8. Her body was laid to rest on Feb. 15.

Camocamo died in October of last year after she allegedly fell from the third floor of her employer’s house. But her family back home only knew of her demise late December through her husband Domingo.

Camocamo, who worked as a domestic helper since 2013, left a son and two daughters behind.
