This post is unrelated to fashion but I felt it's very important to shed a light on a very important issue we have here in our region. The Kuwait Human Rights Society; The Kuwait Society for Basic Evaluators of Human Rights; The Kuwait Center for Expatriates’ Rights; and the Kuwait Social Work Society joined with Human Rights Watch, which documents human rights abuses worldwide, to raise awareness of the abuses faced by domestic workers in Kuwait.
The campaign is an effort to shine a spotlight on abuses that too often remain hidden in private homes and outside the law’s reach. Employers in Kuwait too often violate domestic workers’ rights under both Kuwaiti and international law. The coalition is urging Kuwait to protect domestic workers’ rights under its labor laws, and to grant them the same rights that other workers now have, including limited work hours, on-time payment of wages, and a weekly day off.
So it is my pleasure to post a banner dedicated for this cause, in a small effort to raise awareness among all. Please click the banner on my blog to find out more about human rights abuses world wide.
Thank you Mariam for sharing this with me.
