Kenya: Forsaken By Their Country, These Women Led a Dog’s Life in Beirut

Ms Wambui has experienced sexual harassment, insults and slavery. She ended up at the Kenyan consulate in Beirut, where she sought help to travel back home. Her boss was forced to pass on her passport.

A Lebanese activist whom many women cited as having helped them travel back to Kenya told the Nation she did so independently and that the Kenyan government did not play any part.

"I realised there was no one addressing the urgent needs of the migrant domestic workers, so I stepped in to support them with food, clothes, shoes, underwear and other individual needs," Ms Dea Hage told the Nation.
