Here are few nice illustrations done by Maya Zankoul for the Global Journal on domestic workers in Lebanon. The last one is sadly true but hilarious.
This goes through my head every-time i take my daughter to play in a soft play area of any mall…. it’s only maids hanging out with the kids even the very young ones rarely very rarely do i see the Parents…I can’t imagine anything that is better than seeing your kid try to take on the challenges of crawling up and sliding down something for the first time… My cousin’s kid’s first word was in the native language of his nanny from Sri-Lanka… go figure she was sent home packing the next day… I feel that if the maid (Au-pair in this case) was french they would have given her a raise…I fear the future generations of Lebanon to a very serious level…
