Ending Modern Slavery in Oman

Jul 30, 2021

When hard times struck, Tenneh left her family and her business and traveled to Oman for the opportunity to work as a nanny and better provide for her family. However, the job description was deceiving. Once in Oman, Tenneh worked as a domestic worker from 5 am to 10 pm with no breaks. Seven days a week, she cleaned, cooked, did laundry, washed cars, took care of animals, and more. She only received 80 Omani rials (about $208 USD) a month.

Tenneh’s employers treated her poorly—verbally berating her, denying her medical access, and physically abusing her. They searched her belongings, took her phone, and didn’t give her enough food. She slept on a foam mat on the floor. Eventually, her employer kicked her out of the house and then accused her of leaving her employer, a crime in Omani law. Desperate to return home to her children and her ailing mother, Tenneh found a legal path to leave the country through the amnesty program offered by the government of Oman. Thanks to support from doTERRA, she is now home with her family.

The Rain Collective and Engage Now Africa, with support from doTERRA Healing Hands and other organizations, has supported 18 women to safely return to Sierra Leone from Oman, with more women preparing to return. This partnership provides funds to help with plane tickets, medical costs, and connecting survivors with the resources they need to reunite with their families back home.
