Considering each truck carries about 80 people packed like sardines, your Saudi masters are going to need a lot more trucks than those to haul away the 45,000 Ethiopian girls to Djibouti port on route to Saudi Arabia every month. 45,000 maids to arrive every month from Ethiopia
March 15, 2012
JEDDAH – Ethiopia is facilitating procedures to send 45,000 maids to the Kingdom every month, an informed source at the Ethiopian Embassy in Saudi Arabia has said.
Ethiopian housemaids have been high in demand after the Kingdom stopped recruiting housemaids from four countries, including Kenya, because the Kingdom has been unable to reach a satisfactory agreement with these countries, Asharq Al-Awsat reported Wednesday.
Noor Adeen Masfa, Vice Consul for Economic Affairs in Jeddah, said his department and committees from the Ethiopian Ministry of Labor met several times to facilitate the travel of housemaids to the Kingdom after they are properly trained in Ethiopia.
“We decided to finish procedures of 1,500 housemaids due to the increasing demand for Ethiopian housemaids by Saudi families. Ethiopian housemaids are trained well on Saudi customs and traditions, besides the percentage of runaways is low,” he said.Unavailability of sufficient flights from Addis Ababa has also caused the delay in the travel of a large number of housemaids. http://www.saudigazette.com.sa/index.cf ... 0315119698
