Young workers leave home to escape poverty hoping for brighter opportunities elsewhere. Many of these young women are leaving families in order to send money back home. Often their dreams do not become a reality and sadly many are exploited and abused.
The Domestic helpers and Migrant Workers Programme (DMW) programme was established in 1993 by Christian Action, a partner agency of World Emergency Relief. The primary focus of DMW is to empower foreign domestic and migrant workers of their legal rights. Domestic helpers often find themselves in a vulnerable position with their employees and are easy targets for abuse. DMW raises awareness through educational and training services and advocacy work on behalf of these workers. DMW also offers counselling and provides shelters for abused and exploited workers, many of whom have had their contracts terminated prematurely. WER has funded specialist staff who assist those who have been abused.
