Kuwait bans five more countries’ domestic workers. The five new countries are Djibouti, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau, reports Al-Qabas daily. This came following instructions given by Kuwait’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The total number of countries now stands at 20. The decision says 5 other African countries have been temporarily banned from sending domestic workers to Kuwait: Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi, Eritrea and Liberia. The sources point out, that instructions were issued not to give an entry visa for domestic workers of African countries that have no embassies in Kuwait and/or if the validity of the passport is less than 3 years. Pray that the existing workers will be well treated. Pray that the domestic workers will find jobs to support them. (The Bible, Hebrews 12:14).

A Christian worker said, “The world is becoming more aware of the terrible injustices in the clothing manufacturing industry in Bangladesh. Pressure from international groups does bring some changes.” This worker has a number of friends who work in clothing factories, and though the wages are poor and the working hours long, they are still grateful for the employment. Pray that international pressure will see very real and tangible changes and blessings flow to those who need it most (The Bible, Proverbs 11:17).
