In Lebanon, domestic worker’s last messages show abusive system
The country’s labour minister says an investigation launched after Al Jazeera’s report into circumstances surrounding Faustina Tay’s death.
Faustina Tay sent dozens of chilling voice messages pleading for help. She said her employers in Lebanon
were beating her.
“I’m scared they might kill me,” the 23-year-old said.
Her detailed messages have revealed a disturbing reality in Lebanon, where two domestic workers die every week.
In this episode, we hear from Timour Azhari, the Al Jazeera journalist in Beirut, Lebanon, who first reported the story, and Patricia, a caseworker with Canada-based advocacy group, This Is Lebanon.
The Take’s Executive Producer Stacey Samuel produced this episode with Ney Alvarez, Priyanka Tilve, Alexandra Locke, Amy Walters, Dina Kesbeh and Malika Bilal. Alex Roldan was the sound designer. Natalia Aldana is the engagement producer and Graelyn Brashear is Al Jazeera’s Head of Audio.
