Philippines' ban on sending workers to Kuwait creates tension, confusion

Wednesday 13:38 GMT

The Philippines has imposed a ban on the deployment of all Filipino workers to Kuwait after the death of a domestic worker.

"The Philippines has been a leader in instituting protections for their domestic workers in the Middle East, but these work best for migrants arriving through a regulated channel…A ban would force workers to take greater risks to seek overseas employment while cutting off a critical source of income for families in the Philippines," Begum's statement read.
