Working Abroad May Increase Chances of Abuse


Working abroad may increase chances of abuse.  A Ugandan woman gave an agent $400 to secure her a job in a mall in Dubai. But in the end, she was placed as a domestic worker for a much smaller salary and much, much longer hours…

Her passport and phone were taken away, and she was sometimes beaten.  When she did escape, the Ugandan Embassy helped her, but did not assist her in finding a safe place to stay. It is estimated that 2.4 million domestic employees in the Gulf face abused.

Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.
