Lebanon Must End ‘Kafala’ and the Rampant Abuse of Migrant Domestic Workers

Lebanon’s kafala system exploits migrant domestic workers and leaves them prone to physical and emotional abuse, with many turning to suicide as their only way out.

Lebanon is a country with a population of six million and has over 250,000 migrant domestic workers. The majority of these migrant workers are women that come from countries such as the Philippines, India, Nepal, and Ethiopia.
