Tragedies persist for domestic workers

A memorial Mass for Alem Dechasa-Desisa shortly after her death.

This article was amended on Monday, February 04 2013

The article titled “Tragedies persist for domestic workers” published on Feb. 4, 2013, incorrectly reported that Lebanon’s Labor Ministry had signed a memorandum of understanding with Romania on basic rights for domestic workers. In fact, Romania has no memorandum of understanding with Lebanon on basic rights for domestic workers. Romania has no domestic workers in Lebanon. We regret the error. 

A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Daily Star on February 04, 2013, on page 4.
