    Since the beginning of the economic crisis in Lebanon in 2019, migrant workers have suffered severe financial losses due to being fired, reduction in salaries, and rapid devaluation of the local currency. The lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating these losses. As a result, most migrants are being pushed into severe poverty, unable to secure their most basic needs, including food and shelter.

    On March 14, Faustina Tay, a young woman from Ghana, was discovered dead in the car park of her employer’s home in Beirut. She is yet another migrant domestic worker to lose her life under the kafala system. We call for a thorough and transparent investigation into Faustina's death, as we continue to call for justice for the thousands of cases of violence, abuse, and deaths of migrant workers in Lebanon.

    Faustina’s last message to activists, 18 hours before her death, was “God, please help me.”

    There are around 1.5 million non-Lebanese people in Lebanon and yet most COVID-19 response plans target Lebanese people only. Viruses do not target people based on their nationality or their legal status. Any response plan that does not take this into account is severely flawed and puts all residents, Lebanese and non-Lebanese, at risk. We urge the government, international organisations and local initiatives to implement inclusive and non-discriminatory response plans.

    Mubarak Ibrahim, a Sudanese human rights activist, is under imminent threat of deportation to Sudan where he is at very high risk of detention, torture and death at the hands of the Sudanese authorities.

    This would be Mubarak’s second deportation to Sudan from Lebanon. His first deportation in 2016 resulted in his enforced disappearance, torture and a death sentence imposed upon him due to his opposition to the regime. A second deportation would likely be fatal.
