Tales of survival: migrant domestic workers’ stories in their own words

These are the stories of Indonesian migrant domestic workers and their families whose realities turn out to be far removed from their dreams.

But in spite of the hardships and unbearable suffering they have endured, they refuse to be defeated, and they continue to speak out publicly for the sake of saving other migrant domestic workers from the same fate.

“I do not want to die in Jeddah,” Halimah told the reporter. However, a few days after the interview, Halimah died.
