DUBAI – A Filipina expatriate in Dubai who is mourning the death of her father got into deeper heartache after losing the wallet that contained money to pay for her dad’s funeral.
“I hope whoever found the wallet will have pity on me and return it because the money there is for emergency,” Regine Subido Dimacali told Expatmedia.net on Thursday (November 12).
Dimacali, 27, a sales representative in Dubai, lost her wallet on Wednesday (November 11) evening in front of the West Zone supermarket in Diyafah (2nd December Street).
Her Louis Vuitton wallet contained Dh1,500, and her important government IDs, bank cards and a Nol card.
The Filipina, who has been living in Dubai in the last four years, said this was the first time she had lost a wallet in the emirate.
She said that her father’s death in Tarlac, Philippines left her very stressed and unable to concentrate, and that she didn’t realise the wallet was no longer with her when she left the Diyafah area.
“I only borrowed that money. I was going to use it to pay for some of the expenses for my dad’s funeral,” she told Expatmedia.net.
She was waiting for a friend shopping for groceries when she lost the wallet on one of the sidewalk benches in front of West Zone.
Bystanders told her the wallet was picked up by a woman wearing a white long-sleeved shirt. However, this could not be corroborated by CCTV footage as there was no video coverage where she was sitting.
The Filipina pleaded to anyone with information on the wallet to call her on 0565403600. ICA/Expat Media
Update: At 3pm on Thursday, a few hours after publication of this story, reader Switty Thankachan reached out to Expatmedia.net to offer financial help for Dimacali. “I can understand how tough it can be and hope my gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. I hope she gets her wallet even after I help. It would mean so much to her,” he told Expatmedia.net.
