Meet Maria, a domestic worker from the Philippines. She was trafficked into the UK by her employer and was constantly abused by them. Maria wants the UK government to ratify ILO Convention 189 for Decent Work for Domestic Workers.

In order to support her family in the Philippines, Maria migrated to Saudi Arabia to work as a live-in nanny for a family. Her employers subjected her to abuse and exploitation, even taking her to live in the UK against her will, making her a survivor of human trafficking.
