The New York Times wrote a troubling story of migrant workers from Ethiopia and some Asian countries in Northern Iraq. Yobdar Abu, 23, pictured above has arrived in the Kurdish region in October via Dubai, having been told she was headed for Turkey.
Here is an excerpt from the report
"An agent who has brought in hundreds of Asian and African women in their teens and early 20s said that some had complained of unwanted sexual advances. She told of one client who expressed interest in an exceptionally beautiful young Ethiopian woman, offering extra money for her. He disappeared with the woman for several months, then inexplicably sent her home at his own expense. “I suspect he got her pregnant,” the agency manager said, insisting on anonymity."
Sana Muhammad, a Qadamkher employee, said business was growing rapidly. The agency collects a one-time fee of $2,500 from Kurdish families for each domestic worker.
“We have requests for 10 Indonesian girls right now that we’re trying to fill,” she added. “We have Ethiopian girls available but clients don’t want them. They say their faces are ugly — the black skin is unfamiliar.”
Have Your Say
It is not only their faces but there head, hurt and sight is darkened, with pride, envy, hatred and, of one another and racists to outsiders. They are a total package of darkness. Nazret.com, is a witness for the plaintives against them. Why should they expect better from others?---Eshetu Daba
