British Ambassador in Lebanoon Swapped jobs with Ethiopian Maid

(Oct 15, 2014, (BEIRUT))--UK Ambassador to Lebanon Tom Fletcher "swapped" jobs with an Ethiopian maid Monday in an effort to promote the rights of migrant workers. “I’m trading places with Kalkedan, from Ethiopia, tomorrow. We want to highlight the rights of foreign domestic workers in Lebanon,” read a post on Fletcher’s Twitter page Sunday.

On Monday Fletcher posted a photo of himself scrubbing away at a silver pot under an open faucet. “Kalkedan supervises my washing up,” the caption read. Another photo posted to Twitter shows Fletcher dressed in a white kitchen apron with a bewildered stare as he looks at a tub of Fattoush.

“Improving my Fattoush making skills,” he wrote. Earlier in the day the ambassador brought Kalkedan along with him to the Interior Ministry for a press conference on the topic of migrant worker rights.

Kalkedan, whose last name was not given, attended a meeting between Fletcher and Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk where the trio discussed the Syrian refugee crisis, support for the Lebanese Army, and the terrorist threat facing the country.  Read more from Daily Star »
