Life of a Dh

I was in Lebanon for 10 years working as a domestic helper. I can't imagine how I made it for ten years. Working as DH is not easy, as I have to do all the responsibilities in the house. And it's not easy to get along with the employers and most of them were cruel. They are very particular in cleaning and very strict as well. There are times that I want to give up but I always think of my children future. I'm very thankful to God that despite of the hardship I never experienced of what some Filipina DH has been experiencing in the hands to their employers.
Just like this morning I read in the newspaper that a Filipina Dh in Dubai has been raped and maltreated by her Madam and back in Philippines without any single amount from her wallet because her employer did not give her salary for 1 year. How sad to think, I'm really feel sad to them. I hope that this is going to stop soon. Our government should take action regarding this case, this was happen so many times.
