What We Stand For
Stranded, sick and stashed into Middle-Eastern detention centers, African migrant women domestic workers’ suffering has been pushed to a deadly limit, in the midst of the corona virus pandemic.
Desparately waiting and hoping for a possible emergency rescue back to the homelands they once fled to seek greener pastures, an Amazon best seller: “Deadly Work or Decent Work?” unmasks the 21st century slave-like employment system, kafala.
Some hopeful migrant domestic workers are rudely awakened to their new reality of violence, sexual harassment and abuses, and sometimes deadly working conditions, upon arrival in some of the Middle Eastern countries, where this seventy year old archaic employment system is still practiced.
