Ethiopian domestic workers’ safe return home

17-7-2020

Following strict conditions placed by the Ethiopian embassy in Lebanon for the safe return for its nationals (https://bit.ly/2VczVRA), the labor ministry yesterday disclosed that it received confirmation from Ethiopian consulate authorizing the repatriation of MWDWs to Ethiopia, provided PCR tests taken 72 hours prior to flight prove negative. The anguish of migrant women domestic workers has flared up with the surge in the US dollar against the lira when employers couldn’t pay the wages any longer (https://bit.ly/2vf54dL) and the suffering was exacerbated further by the coronavirus pandemic. MWDWs were forced to stay in the country in light of the difficult conditions their consulate set for their evacuation (https://bit.ly/2VczVRA). (Al Diyar, July 17, 2020)
