Video: Domestic Workers In Lebanon Sing Powerful Song About The Kafala System

Like many migrant domestic workers before them, women from Sierra Leone have been trapped in Lebanon, stranded, unemployed, and unable to return home.

Their situation was made worse now as Lebanon goes through an economic collapse. Left stranded in the streets, it wasn’t long before 28-year-old Lucie met other Sierra Leonean women like her. They were living together in a small apartment, and she joined.

They had begged their consulate in Beirut to help them return home to no avail. But who would have thought that through music, over 100 women would be able to go back home?
