Cases of Kafala Abuse in Lebanon

Six workers paid George thousands to help them become documented. He took their money and disappeared.

Sexual harassment, non-payment of salary, injured in Beirut blast, detained at the airport, and imprisoned due to a false accusation.

Modupe's experiences in Lebanon showcase the problems with kafala.

There are multiple witnesses to the abuse meted out in Hayat Toumieh's agency in Zahle. The Lebanese government should carry out an independent investigation and hold the perpetrators accountable.

Fadi and Marguerite hadn't paid Veronica for 9 months. They tried to sell her but Veronica was determined to go home. She did so, but without her salary.

Nadim and Abir Haddad promised Grace that they were saving her money for her and she would receive it all when she went home - not a single cent short. Grace believed them because they drove flash cars including a Lamborghini. They sent her home $2800 short and are refusing to pay her.
