FiShiGhalat is a campaign aimed at highlighting the current regulations related to sponsorship that permit the exploitation of the Migrant Domestic Workers (MDWs). It is supported by the Lebanese Ministry of Social Affairs. [FiShiGhalat.com]

Since the Lebanese Ministry of Social Affairs is supportive of such campaigns, let the minister in question work on abolishing the so-called “Kafala” system and propose a standard contract of work. Until then, let us all take the initiative of hiring part-time domestic foreigners workers instead of going through this racist and demeaning sponsorship system. There are a lot of offices offering this service nowadays.
