Cases of Kafala Abuse in Lebanon

Jean Geagea of Al-Chwar Restaurant enslaved Gifty using her as forced labour to clean his restaurant.

Multiple victims of sexual abuse by Nakhle Gabriel, owner of Gabriel Services recruitment agency, have come forward with strikingly similar testimonies. From stolen salaries to physical abuse and coerced sexual acts, survivors like Mercy, Grace, Elizabeth, Sylvie, and others expose a pattern of exploitation at Gabriel Services.

Eliane Khoury, Queen of TikTok, used her domestic worker as a prop in videos which gained millions of views, all while blackmailing her and keeping her in forced labour.

Jessayln's employer moved to Australia so it was relatively easy to help her get her 4 months unpaid salary. There are laws around enforced labour in Australia.

Samira was "happy, happy, happy" to receive the 5 months salary she was owed by "the wicked family who treated her like an animal".

Fulmaya worked for the Keusseian family for more than 15 years. They have a history of credit problems and sent her home owing her $29,500.
