Kuwait is one of the countries that have the most number of domestic workers. Out of the population of 4 Million, almost 700,000 domestic workers were employed in Kuwait and a lot of them were Filipinos. Recently, deploying domestic workers was temporarily banned after the incident of the ruthless killing of a maid and hide her body in a freezer.

Negotiation had been made and Kuwait approved to grant domestic workers protections. Through years of protest by human rights groups in response to numerous abuses experienced by domestic workers, this may be one of the fruits of their voice and an action of our Present Administration.
