Gambian migrant workers repatriated after months stranded in Lebanon

Dozens of Gambian workers stranded in Lebanon for months were able to return home earlier this week despite a lack of support from their government, an NGO confirmed.

In a statement released on Friday, Action for Humanity confirmed that it had "facilitated the repatriation of 38 Gambian women including two children from Beirut". With no direct flights between Lebanon and The Gambia, the NGO paid for flights to theĀ Senegalese capital DakarĀ and organised buses to the women's hometowns.
