"I expose slavery in this country because to expose it is to kill it." Fredrick Douglas

 

Did you know?

There are about 200,000 Foreign Domestic Workers (FDW) in Lebanon.

FDW are the only "employees" who do not legally (nor practically) have any work schedule; they are exploited for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

FDW's passports are confiscated by their employers the moment they arrive to Lebanon.

On average, one FDW dies EVERY WEEK from unnatural causes.

Out of 114 judicial cases concerning FDW, not a single employer was charged for locking the workers, confiscating their passports, or denying them food!

Our treatment of FDW violates 4 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

 

Outraged by these facts?

Join the campaign to raise the voice against the continuous violations of the Domestic Workers' basic Human Rights!
