HOUSE MAID

HOUSE MAID: A story behind the suffering of a Sri Lankan Migrant worker in Saudi Arabia.

by Indika Guruge  (Author)

House Maid

A story behind the suffering of a Sri Lankan Migrant worker in Saudi Arabia. A mother of four children struggles to manage her family with a stubborn, drunken, worthless husband. She works in a local factory, but is not satisfied with the salary. She thinks migrating to a foreign land would be the only hope, and securing a job in the Middle East will just be the answer to all her problems. Flying to Saudi Arabia as a housemaid was a dream come true, and her place of work was her dream home. Yet, day after day, this woman comprehends her mistake and regrets her stupid action. She is trapped not only by the secured walls of the Arabian house, but also by rules, regulations, and her negligence on working in a foreign land. The money she hardly earned does not serve its purpose either, as her drunkard husband grabs it all, leaving a little to the family. After confronting serious suffering and torture, and at the heavy cost of her children’s safety, she realizes that money itself does not bring the contentment she desired, but the route to happiness involves many things more…

This story is inspired by true events faced by Sri Lankan female workers who have being migrating to Middle East countries as housemaids for many years. It reveals the reality of these dream jobs, the suffering they endure, the many aspects in their lives, damaged by these foreign jobs, and, above all, how their hopes of a better life through foreign employment, is shattered.
