Sheikha Bibi at forefront in fight for Expats Rights

May 1, 20180 Comments

As founder and head of the Social Work Society (SWS), Sheikha Bibi Nasser Al Sabah has been at the forefront of fighting for the rights of the disenfranchised migrant workers in Kuwait, reports Al-Rai daily.

In the pursuit of justice for the most victimized, the founder spends most of her time between police stations providing support for workers filing complaints; in hospitals, checking on abused workers and documenting information for cases; in courtrooms, coordinating with lawyers, and anywhere between the SWS office, embassies, and shelters, collaborating with migrant community organizations, advocates, and embassies.

“The SWS was registered in 2005, long before the labor law reforms of 2010, before the trafficking laws, before the domestic worker’s law. Our work has preceded and advocated for these policy reforms, Al Sabah pointed out.

As a Kuwaiti organization, the society’s access, influence and privilege are critical not only to directly supporting workers but to the formal and informal migrant groups who provide indispensable, often underthe- radar, relief and rescue.
