Lebanon’s migrant workers abandoned amid economic crisis

Domestic workers abandoned and left homeless as Lebanon’s worst-ever economic crisis deepens.

Thousands of migrant workers in Lebanon are struggling to leave as the country’s economy teeters on the verge of collapse.

Even before the financial crisis hit, the community was vulnerable to abuse and exploitation.

Now, many Lebanese employers have stopped paying their live-in domestic staff altogether.

And some workers have been abandoned outside embassies.
