Urge the Philippines to Protect Domestic Workers from Modern Slavery

      Walk Free

Filipinos are the face of domestic work all around the world. More girls and women leave from the Philippines to find jobs as maids or nannies than from any other country. 



But when they show up for their first day of work, many find out they’ve been deceived. Locked inside the homes of strangers, their passports taken away, often beaten and sexually abused, Filipino girls as young as 9 years old are caught in the nightmare of modern slavery. 



For the first time ever, there’s a global standard to protect domestic workers.

It only needs one more country’s support to become operative. The Philippines can be that country – and can lead the global fight to end slavery. 



Right now, the Philippines Senate is considering a vote on this new standard. 

Ask the Philippines Senate to support the legislation and we'll personally deliver your letters of support from all over the world.

      Aside from slavery, many Filipino DHs around the world are being abused, raped and murdered, especially in Middle Eastern countries.

      I survived slavery and there was no law that lawyers could refer to when they tried to defend my rights to be safe from sexual abuse and torture and tefth. Philippines domestic workers deserve to be protected from slavery like other people deserve to be protected from slavery. Our community needs global standards to protect child slave and domestic workers. Only with laws to defend victims this crime against people can be stopped and our community made into a better place.

      There are approximately 27 million slaves in the world today. There is a group working to help free and give care to slaves. Go to their website: www.ijm.org

      I recently read that there are now more slaves on our planet than any other time in history.

      Please do all you can to protect women from the terrible reality of slavery.

      Filipinas are very sweet girls and women when you get to know her. Just don't get on her bad side and things will work.
