“There are currently 200,000 migrant domestic workers in Lebanon todayin a country of 4 million. Due to the sponsorhsip system, maids are required to live with their employers, and are instantly ‘illegal’ when they run away from the home. Maids save on rent, bills, and food costs living with their employers. These women often hold households together, they are the mothers, the cooks, the doctors, and the cleaners. According to Human Rights Watch report in 2008, one maid is dying every week as a result of abuse or suicide.” - Natalie Naccache in the introduction to No, Madam
