85 % Domestic Helper Agencies have no applications after Philippines ban



Chairman of the Kuwaiti Domestic Helper Agencies Union Khaled Al-Dakhnan said 85 percent of agencies have no applications because they mainly rely on recruiting domestic helpers from the Philippines, which is currently suspended in the aftermath of the killing of a Filipina maid by her sponsor. Dakhnan added that most agencies are completely empty except for a few with Sri Lankan helpers aged over 40, which is dissatisfactory to some citizens, who prefer younger maids.-K.T.
