If the Kafala system is here to stay (unfortunately), it’s up to us to treat the workers with the respect they deserve

My parents, both full time workers, it was difficult for them to raise 2 children on their own. Thus, in 2005 (I was 2 years old my brother was a couple of months old), Didi (the nanny) became part of our family. She was a filipino in her early twenties who came here to support her family financially.

No it isn't a flex. No we don't need to be praised for it. The way we treated her is how every Lebanese should treat their nanny. Treating them as salves won't make them work harder. On the other hand, when they feel safe and respected, they will be more productive
