Kafala system in Lebanon: "Modern-day slavery"

"The sense of entitlement that these employers have that they fully have justified to themselves keeping her (domestic worker) working for months and sometimes years without paying. And even when we approached them, refusing to send her home, it's quite bewildering, to be honest."

The Kafala system in Lebanon is trapping thousands of domestic workers in "highly abusive conditions" according to right groups, and the country's financial crisis has exacerbated their suffering.
