Labour Day, May 1

Published on May 1, 2012

More than forty workers from Al Hayki Excavators in Ma’ameer enjoyed a day of fun at their accommodation on May 1, Labour Day. MWPS volunteers together with volunteers from Saar Fellowship arranged a full programme for the men, starting with Tug-o’-War. A game of volleyball was then followed by a raffle, a brief safety presentation, singing, dancing and, finally, a hearty lunch. Workers and volunteers alike had a great day.

The Migrant Workers Protection Society (MWPS)

Migrant Workers Protection Society (MWPS) was established in 2005 under license 25/C/AC (ج/أج/ ٢٥) from the Ministry of Social Development.

Our Mission Statement is to seek to help expatriate workers achieve their basic human rights in accordance with internationally recognized standards.

We are the only society in the region to work exclusively in support of the expatriate worker community, as far as we are aware.

We have more than 50 members from Australia, Bahrain, Britain, Canada, Ethiopia, India, Italy, Kenya, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and the US, all of whom work on an entirely voluntary basis.

We receive referrals for support almost every day, from a variety of sources including from workers themselves, from members of the public, from police stations, from embassies, from officials at the Ministry of Labour and sometimes from Detention Centre and Immigration officials.
