Cases of Kafala Abuse in Lebanon

Marta was enslaved for years and physically abused on a regular basis. She has the scars to prove it. Rana and Qassem stole her $5279 salary.

Omolade did not want to go public about Joelle and Elie but their total unwillingness to negotiate left her no choice.

After more than a year of negotiations, Martha was finally paid her 18 months salary.

Maroun harassed Charlotte to sleep with him. He made her touch his penis. He sent her home owing 4 months salary and kept her phone because she had messaged us.

Mario's Facebook profile says "calm, respectful, kind". What should also be mentioned is his forging of receipts to pretend to pay his worker her salary.

Sandra's employers didn't even buy her a sanitary pad. She worked for them for 1 year 9 months and suffered physical abuse, food deprivation, overwork and insults. She is owed $3,260.
