Migrant workers who faced difficulties in Kuwait repatriated

Sri Lanka Embassy in Kuwait, in coordination with Kuwaiti authorities, facilitated the return of 33 migrant workers to Sri Lanka from Kuwait last week, the Foreign Ministry said today.

Many of these migrant workers who faced difficulties at their workplaces were accommodated at the Safe House maintained by the Embassy, while some stayed at other places of their choice, until the required formalities were completed.

As per available statistics, there are approximately 100,000 Sri Lankan migrant workers in Kuwait and majority of them are female domestic workers.
