Under the ‘kafala’ (sponsorship) system, employers of migrant domestic workers can imprison and abuse their subjects behind closed doors and enjoy complete impunity for their crimes. There are very few places abused workers can go for help – except to our page. We fight to have them paid and sent home, and if their abusers aren’t willing to do the bare minimum, we expose them and bring their crimes into the light. Two domestic workers are dying every week in Lebanon. Donate to help these women now. This can’t wait. You can make a difference.
