Abuse of Domestic Workers in Dubai

God is all powerful and all knowing, and although He is always there to protect us, many cases of violence and hate still occur all around the world. There is a reason that such things happen, for God has a plan for all. Perhaps, it is to test the faith of a certain person, or maybe it is to test the faith of humanity in general. We can’t ever know for sure, since we don’t know what God’s plans for us may be. That said, we only need to have faith and to keep praying.

Treatment of domestic workers in Dubai

If you’re someone who lives in Dubai, then you most probably have heard of all the negative things about how many rich people around the country and the Middle East in general treat their domestic workers. We’re sure that you’re aware of all of this, and you know that although nothing seems wrong on the surface, it is all an illusion.

That stated, not all the people living in the Middle East are violent or abusive towards their workers, and not all of them mistreat them, so all hope is not lost. However, we still should not turn our backs to the fact that negative cases as such do happen, and that in this day and age, people are still treated like slaves.

In many cases, the workers’ passports are taken away as soon as they enter the country. They’re then mistreated by their bosses and they’re not paid for their services, or if they’re “lucky”, they get paid very little. The workers mainly come to the Middle East in search for a better life and better pay so that they’re able to send money to their families back home. However, with their escape route blocked off and in a foreign land where they probably don’t even speak the local dialect, they’re trapped and their owners treat them like slaves, in many cases beating them and even going as far as raping them.



As gruesome as this might sound, it does happen, and it is happening now as we speak in some part of the world. As someone living in Dubai, you can always spread awareness about such a situation and make way for domestic workers to approach you or a support group that would be able to rescue them from such an atrocious situation.

Another thing that you can also do is hire a person for housekeeping Dubai yourself so that you can teach others through your example to treat the workers correctly and with respect as they rightfully deserve to be treated. Always remember that God is watching, and despite the resistance that you may face on your journey to doing the right thing, God will reward you in one way or another. You will be saving the lives of many, just like Christ saved ours.

Keep in mind that it is all about the intention. Always intend to do well and to help those in need, God will show you the way. If you want to learn more about the abuse on domestic helpers, click http://edition.cnn.com/2015/07/27/asia/asia-abused-maids/
