Lebanon's kafala system restricts rights for 250,000 people

"Sometimes, they lock me up and they ask me to drink from the toilets." People under Lebanon's kafala system call it modern-day slavery. Here's why.

    Having slaves is in their book. Having slaves is normal for the Islamic world. You can’t tell me any different b/c I had a classmate in High School who is Sunni and he would tell me things about the Quran b/c I would ask him questions. He even told me the difference between Shias and Sunnis and why they have beef. Also, he said that Shias and Sunnis believe in having “slaves”. They want real slaves not domestic workers. She is lucky that they don’t treat her the way they really want to treat her.

    Kafala system must be removed. Best thing is let this knowledge spread so others do not fall into the trap. I hope all those migrants make it back home. Shame on your lebanese employer that practice this horrible system. Do what is right and you will be bless.

    Let's worry about this country and fix the problems before trying to help the whole world we are not the world babysitters I'm sorry things like this happen but the world is a screwed-up place right now let's take care of our own family and then maybe we can help others this is not the 70s or 80s or 90s this is 20/20 it's about survival good luck and God bless everybody on this nightmare year of 2020 which will soon be over

    Yes, that is also many of Ethiopian workers in Arab countries. They hold them like a hostage by holding their passport and their sponsor has ‘ full right’ on them. Less or no pay at all, living slave like life and abused and neglected. The sad part is these citizen are not even getting the protection they deserve from their country embassies. Here is migrants in Saudi Arabia https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/climate-and-people/investigation-african-migrants-left-die-saudi-arabias-hellish/

    This is very sad and very common in all arab countries. As a non-arab you are as good as trash, if you’re not muslim and a woman, your “master” and his sons can and mostly will rape you. If you’re black you’ll prolly get stones thrown at you in Lebanon. Filthy scum bag of a race and ppl!

    You can work you can get paid but they have no Right to control your life or hold you hostage. What is going on we are living in 2020 no one's should be treated like this. I am so sorry what ur going through in everyday life like this.
