The Philippine Embassy in Tokyo is calling on the relatives and friends of Filipino worker Dominador “Doddy” Garcia Sto. Domingo, who slipped into a coma, to get in touch with them and help bring the Filipino home.
In a statement, the embassy said that Sto. Domingo has woken from being comatosed from September 2013 to January 2014. But although he is now awake, part of his body was paralyzed and he’s unable to talk.
Sto. Domingo, 53, has been living in Japan for 22 years without a valid visa. He works part-time in a construction company.
“Siya ngayon ay nagpapalakas upang mabigyan ng pagkakataong makauwi sa Pilipinas at makapiling muli ang kanyang mga mahal sa buhay,” the embassy said.
Based on the information the embassy has, Sto. Domingo is married to Amor Yabut Sto. Domingo. They have two children–Gerard and Jazelle Anne.
His last known address in the Philippines was at 490 Tandang Sora, Quezon City.
Anyone who knows Sto. Domingo may get in touch with the Department of Foreign Affairs Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers Affairs at (02) 834-4000 or (02) 834-3246 and look for Jezelle Amorado or the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo at (+813) 5562-1600 or (+813) 5562-1607 and look for Jun Sibug or Diane Bartolome.
