Two Lebanese offer migrant workers a way back home

BEIRUT: In a damp room with a few rotting pieces of furniture and old mattresses on the floor, seven migrant women sit hugging their belongings, a Kenyan flag hanging behind them on the wall.

A Lebanese woman walks into the apartment, located in a poor area east of Beirut, and the migrants rush excitedly to hug her.

“We are finally going home,” says Nancy, a 25-year-old Kenyan. “Déa is a heavenly saint. We experienced a lot here, but Déa and her friend are our saviors.”
