The Lebanese currency lost 81% of its value, and the spread of COVID-19 in March 2020 compounded by one of the largest non-nuclear explosions in the world which hit the Beirut port in August has led to a serious economic crisis.

As a result, the majority of the population can no longer afford to pay for domestic work, which is the primary occupation of Sri Lankans in Lebanon.

The most commonly cited challenge for these workers is the withholding of their wages, the depletion of their savings as most of them have been unemployed or underemployed for a year.
