Newsline: Nepal Embassy in Abu Dhabi shelters ‘abused or overworked’ housemaids

A lack of proper meals, overwork, physical assault and unpaid wages have forced many housemaids to flee their sponsors’ homes and seek shelter at their respective embassies. The Nepalese embassy in Abu Dhabi currently shelters seven maids, most of whom entered the UAE on tourism or cleaners’ visas and later obtained domestic work visas. The Nepalese embassy’s labour office said it strives to ensure rights for maids and to repatriate those in need of help.
