Africa Consortium Works Together To Bring Back Migrants From Lebanon

While South African diplomats and officials are busying siphoning funds kept aside for Covid-19 recovery, migrant workers are tolling it out in Lebanon. The low skilled workers are having a harrowing time in Lebanon where the political and economical conditions have hit rock bottom.

Conditions in Lebanon are such that there is bleak hope for their own leave alone African migrant workers. The currency has depreciated. There is an inflation and job loss that has forced Lebanese nationals not to afford workers.

On top of it, the historical sponsorship (Kafala) system gives room for exploitation and abuse where workers cannot seek change of employment from a current employer. There is increased pressure on domestic migrant workers who are stuck with employers that are working from home due to the COVID-19 situation.
