Enslaved in Kuwait

Believing recruiters’ lies, “Karine,” “Susan” and “Cynthia” flew to Kuwait for well-paying jobs, only to find themselves as housemaids forced to work 18 hours a day, locked in with no means of communication, beaten, hungry, sexually advanced on, robbed of their possessions, and sleeping on the floor. They tell how they got there and how they escaped.

This is the first production for WINGS from new WINGS contributing producer in Cameroon, Patience Wirngo.


Karine, Susan, Cynthia (pseudonyms), women who escaped Kuwait; Beatrice Titanji, National Vice President of the organization Nkumu Fed Fed, which combats human trafficking.


Produced by Patience Wirngo; Series Producer/Editor: Frieda Werden.
