NEW YORK, NY, September 03, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — deadly work or Decent work?: SOS! Africa-Middle East Domestic workers’ Migration Process™”, a riveting, must read book pre-launched on August 1, 2020 by world renowned migration expert, H.E. Rev. Dr. A.K. Ocansey, has already become a International Best Seller within its first few weeks at Amazon.
“deadly work or Decent work?” is an alarming revelation on a raging 21st century slavery leading to an urgent outcry and humble appeal to Middle Eastern and African leaders for the abolishment of the horrifying archaic migrant employment hiring system in the Middle East: Kafala. This eye-opening book journeys deeply into the trenches, bringing us face to face with the mind boggling violent experiences of the most vulnerable migrant workers: women domestic workers – whose plights have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 era, especially in Lebanon, where the recent explosions have created an unprecedented number of sick, stranded, suffering and even suicidal African women, desperately waiting to be rescued as they have no money to buy tickets back home, most being victims of human trafficking and kafala.
It is a go-to guide that demystifies the good, the bad and the deadly migrant hiring systems in the Middle-East. It advocates for the creation of a dedicated multilateral platform: the “SOS! Africa-Middle East Domestic workers Migration Process”, with a roadmap and ten culturally illuminated keys for a paradigm shift from deadly to Decent work, for the benefit of the African member states, the Middle Eastern countries as well as the migrant women domestic workers.
H.E. Rev. Dr. A.K. Ocansey says, “This is a call from God to the world to save these young women and to put a stop to this deadly practice immediately! Young African women need Decent work and proper training, not deadly work!”
“These girls are just simply trying to provide for their families and the atrocities some of them are facing is the worst kind of indecency and something we all need to stand up for”, said Steve Kidd, host of the USA popular radio show: “Thriving Entrepreneur”.
