The Persecution of Christians and other non-Muslim maid servants in Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf States is enormous with an estimated 1.8 million women in bondage. Many are abused sexually, some even eaten, as well as whipped, burned at the mercy of their slave masters.
Here is very disturbing example of an Ethiopian women turned upside down and whipped.
Here is another picture of a 23 year old Filipino women brutally burned by her Saudi slave masters.
About 6 weeks ago we were contacted by a supporter who was in direct contact with a Kenyan woman who was enslaved by a Saudi family. They reluctantly agreed to let her go home to Kenya and resettle the woman’s kids because ironically they were living in a Muslim neighborhood. The Saudi family only agreed to let her go if she left all her money behind (not much) and they also did not allow her to travel with any money for the long journey.
The Saudi family figured that because she was destitute and without their meager job that she would have to return to Saudi Arabia. They were right except they did not figure that Rescue Christians would fill the vacuum.
Further after the woman arrived in Kenya she found out that one of her children had received a bad burn on her leg possibly because the Saudi family had not paid the child minder in Kenya (part of the contract of employment, but they stopped once they agreed to allow the woman to return home). The child minder never brought the child to hospital possibly because they were not paid. The burn on the leg has now been infected, pray for the child’s health.
We are still in the middle of this situation and helping the women with money to get an apartment, supply money for food and help restore her to her children as well as get her a job that she can live peaceably so she never has to return to Saudi Arabia.
We will keep you updated on this story and when the case history is complete the victim has agreed to an interview which we will do and publish on the web site. Pray for our efforts to be successful.
