Saudi Family burst into tears on the farewell of their Housemaid

Housemaids, your servants, and workers are not just workers, they are also human beings with complete feelings, emotions and crave for love as much as we do.

Some people are so good that the people serving or working for them feel pleasure in doing so, and never leave. Money is not everything, respect is.

When a housemaid serves a family for a long time she becomes the part of that family. The bond between the family and housemaid cannot be defined easily.

A similar incident happened in Saudi Arabia. A Saudi family bid farewell to their maid in tears and the scene went quite emotional at the airport.

A Saudi journalist Khalid Al-Zaidan shared a video on his Twitter account which showed a Saudi Family bidding farewell to their maid who had been with them for 33 years.

This emotional video showed that three generation of the family gathered to bid farewell to their Domestic worker at Riyadh airport.

This video gained a lot of attention and appreciation from the people. The Saudi Family not only showed their love, and affection to the maid but also paid gratitude toward her.

They waved off her with lots of love and good memories. That moment showed moments of loyalty and good faith.

The maid who was sitting in a wheelchair, too could not hide her tears and was feeling sad while leaving that Saudi family. She had contributed to the service of their daughters, their children, and their children’s children.  

This also represented the good behavior and relations of the family toward their workers. Such moments when captured make create an emotional scene, where no one can hide their emotions.

Love and affection are such human feelings that cannot be hidden, they are spoken without words. No language is needed; no words are required to show the respect you have for anyone.

I am an expatriate who is living in Saudi Arabia for a long time. I know that every time the videos which go viral on social media about housemaids contains negative stuff. People think that all Saudis behave like this to their housemaids.

Believe me, the majority of the Saudi population is very kind-hearted. They treat their housemaids and domestic workers very well. There is a small proportion of Saudi families who don’t treat their domestic workers well.

But you can find this kind of culprits in every country, every economy and every city no matter where you are.
