HELP KENYAN MIGRANT WORKERS

COVID-19 has left many Kenyan migrant workers jobless and stranded in Middle Eastern countries. We urgently need your help to support them.

We’re a network of volunteers.

Our mission is to support the return, reintegration and advocacy of Kenyan Migrant domestic workers in the Middle Eastern countries like Lebanon and Bahrain.

There are an estimated 100,000 to 300,000 Kenyan Migrant Workers working in the Middle East.


Many are female domestic workers contracted under the Kafala system. Following the COVID-19 pandemic and explosion in Lebanon, hundreds have become jobless and homeless. Here’s how we are supporting them:

RELIEF

Providing financial assistance to workers awaiting repatriation in Lebanon, Bahrain and other Middle Eastern countries.

REINTEGRATION

Providing cash transfers, psychosocial and livelihood support to returnees.

ADVOCACY

Collaborating with NGOs to educate & advocate for migrant workers’ rights & welfare.

Labour Migration in Kenya

Kenya is a major source of migrant domestic labour for the Middle East. Over the last few years, many migrant domestic workers have shared their experiences of abuse and exploitation at the hands of their employers & recruitment agencies. Kafala, exclusion from national labour laws and weak enforcement of laws are largely to blame.

Our blog brings you commentary and analysis on Kenyan labour migration to the Middle East.
