  • Just to respond to the Oh poor Srilankan comments.... Hello I am Alex and I live in Quebec, Canada .Just to let you know that everybody outside Lebanon knows that many domestic workers are mistreated in Lebanon. Many commit suicide .What a shame for Lebanon! .Let' s hope that courageous Minister Boutros Harb will regulate their work with his new law and that employers in Lebanon start treating them as human beings!Even if they are making more money than in their respective countries that are very poor they should be treated with respect and dignity One day will come when bad employers will be punished by law in Lebanon as they say in Arabic Elak yom ya zalem.....

  • Hello, I´m Dunia and I live in Brazil. I started watching Shankaboot this week and I´m enjoying it kteer! So, congratulations to you all, it´s very creative, for sure...I´d like to know how Lebanese people feel about Shankaboot, if it´s well seen or, instead, considered too advanced for the country in terms of narrative, as there are drugs and violence involved. About the maids in Lebanon I always wondered if there is any kind of work regulation like we have here in Brazil...apparently there isn´t. Thanks and mabrouk again!
