Jack, an anonymous contributor, said: “For a Filipino domestic worker like me, the key is a symbol of trust that binds us with our employer. We always keep them safe. This week, I took out the keys for my employers’ houses. I haven’t used some of them since the lockdown. Now I will start using them again. My employers texted me to come to work”.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
