Few months back, His Excellency was invited to a formal dinner when he noticed domestic workers were all seated on a separate table, so he went and sat down with them then left the dinner. Today, Tom has decided to fill in the shoes of Kalkedan, an Ethiopian domestic worker, to highlight once again migrant workers rights in Lebanon.

Needless to say, this is a great initiative, just like all the previous initiatives that his Excellency has taken. Ambassador Fletcher has been serving as a role model for everyone in Lebanon, and has been doing way more than what he’s required and setting the bar very high for other ambassadors and foreign representatives and Lebanese politicians of course.

We are very lucky to have someone like Tom Fletcher serving our country and I am very fortunate to have met him on several occasions.
