A Sri Lankan housemaid and her newborn baby died in the house of her sponsor in Qurain. Securitymen and medical emergency personnel rushed to the location after the Operations Room at the Ministry of Interior received a call from the sponsor of the housemaid. However, the maid and her baby were already dead when they arrived at the scene. 

The sponsor told investigators the housemaid experienced difficulties while delivering the baby and since there were no medical facilities in the house, both of them died. Their remains were referred to Forensics. A case was registered and investigations are in progress to determine the actual circumstances leading to the death of the maid and her baby. (Arab Times)

    Why sent our folks to the Mid.East when they do not treat their own women fairly what can one expect from them to treat women of other countries.

    What a price to pay to keep the home fires burning. As long as the need is there the supply of maids will never stop. My heart goes out to her family.

    One would have thought that the house maids go to these countries to work and not to give birth to children - most probably without a husband.

    These people are animals with only a few having acquired some education and social upbringing. The majority of men are are ruled their wealth but most are still social misfits in any decent society.
