After Two Years of Forced Labour, Keriya Is Released.

Keriya’s family contacted us on 23 December, 2018. They were worried because Keriya had been in Lebanon for 6 years. Why wasn’t she going home? Why hadn’t she sent any money for 6 months? We contacted her employer who said, ” I asked her many times if she wants to travel but she always said no.” Obviously a lie. Eventually, knowing that they would be exposed on Facebook if they didn’t do her papers, they went to General Security and submitted them. We made sure that they knew we would post about them if they didn’t pay her her outstanding salary. It worked. Keriya flew home in April and was finally reunited with her family. Keriya is an Oromo speaker from Ethiopia.
