A 20-year-old Kenyan lady identified as Stephanie, who is reported to be stranded in Lebanon, is currently pleading for help to go back home.
According to a Facebook user identified as Boniface Mwangi, Stephanie had traveled to Lebanon when she turned 20 in search of greener pastures.
Reportedly, she had grabbed a job in a foreign nation, where she was working as a house help.
Barely a month after she was hired, her employer, identified as Jihan Jawad, allegedly started mistreating her after cutting off all communication between Stephanie and her family.
The situation left her family back in Kenya in distress, as they thought something bad had happened to their daughter.
Luckily, Stephanie's neighbour helped with a mobile phone, with which she managed to make communications back home and alert her family to what was going on.
She alleged that her skin was reacting to the cleaning chemicals at her employer's house and that her employer did little to treat her, as he only took her to the pharmacy, where she was given some medications that didn't work.
She also claimed to have not been paid for the period she worked.
When she pleaded with her employer to let her go back to Kenya, her employer rejected her request.
The owner of the agency that recruited her also refused to come to her rescue.
She made the decision to flee as the situation grew worse and was saved by helpful people who discovered her in a run-down state.
The samaritans cleaned her up and called her sister to notify her of what was happening.
Currently, Stephanie is still stranded in Lebanon and is pleading for help to go back.
