Ethiopian Suicides is one year old

On October 28, 2010, after 4 "suicides" of migrant domestic workers, mostly Ethiopians, the blog was created.

In one year, we accounted for approximately 30 deaths, mostly classified as suicides, and several attempted suicides in the migrant domestic workers population in Lebanon. Our sources were the media, so the figure can be higher.

In one year, we talked about access to justice, access to swimming pools, migrant's social life, NGO interventions, government and security forces role, media coverage, legal issues, etc.

In one year, we received over 17,000 visits and 27,000 pages views.

In one year, we documented two successful court case where Lebanese were condemned for abusing their maids.

We look forward to running out of business and closing this blog soon. I hope.
