A new house for equality

Hibir on the migrant house

The status quo for many migrant workers in Lebanon is not a healthy one, nor a happy one; as migrant workers here suffer from racism, which stretches into many aspects of their Lebanese life; from unequal pay and bad working conditions, to shameless mockery and, in some cases, abuse. There have been many initiatives to improve the migrants’ present plight and one such initiative involves a house that is being renovated in Naba’a.

The Anti-Racism Movement (ARM) is launching their Migrant House in Naba’a, near the Life Center Church, on September 11, 2011. The organizers and managers of the house hope it becomes a safe and prosperous location for the many migrant and domestic workers living in Naba’a, who will be able to come and participate in many activities, activism or otherwise.
