It’s been some weeks since Walk of Causes finished, and still a few hundred people discover it every day! We hope it will stay like this for a long time, so that more and more people can discover the beauty of this country. So far we’ve found sponsors for four of the fourteen episodes, but this week A&C Bogstadveien contacted us because they wanted to sponsor Episode 11 – For the rights of Domestic workers. (Just give them a “Like” on the FaceBook page that we put on the top right corner, please!)
This very topic has been on peoples lips here in Beirut after LBC showed a sickening video of Alem Dechasa, an ethiopian migrant worker, being violently forced into a car two weeks ago. This Wednesday she committed suicide while undergoing psychiatric treatment. Today there are an estimated 200,000 migrant domestic workers in Lebanon. See the Ethiopian Suicide Blog for more information about the problems they are facing. And if you know any organizations working with these issues, please contact us so that we can give them half of our new sponsor money!
Here is the video of Alem Dechasa that has been circling around Lebanon lately.
And here is Episode 11 that A&C Sponsored
