As far as I know you can have your maid make an on line appointment at the Philippine embassy here in Singapore, download and complete the application form and she can then apply for a new passport.
This assumes your maid is working here legally of course and you should check the Philippine Embassy web site to ensure your maid has all the necessary documentation to make the application.
There is a lot of information at

It's never correct so she will have to foot the bill for all that procedure she managed to escape by being a direct hire. And the will gouge her big time.Household service workers (domestic workers) are also required to submit a copy of their verified Employment Contract.
If you do not have a contract yet, such as when you were employed on a "direct hire" basis, you will have to submit a contract between you and your employer to the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) of the Embassy. POLO will verify the contract. The verified contract will be part of the requirements for the renewal of your passport. More information, especially for the employers, can be found here.
