Even the Smallest Contribution Makes a Difference

Welcome To
The Migrant Workers Protection Society

The Migrant Workers Protection Society (MWPS) is a Bahraini registered non-profit NGO established in 2005. Our mission is to work towards ensuring low-income expatriate workers have access to basic human rights in Bahrain in accordance with international standards.

We aim to achieve this by creating awareness through education and advocacy, by providing basic necessities to those in need, by offering translation and administrative support services, and by facilitating repatriation for special cases. We depend solely on donations from private companies and individuals to carry out this important work.

MWPS members are a diverse group of volunteers from different countries, religions and cultures.
