The Migrant Workers Protection Society (MWPS) is proud to announce the launch of #ExtendTheShade campaign, an initiative aimed at extending the summer afternoon work ban in Bahrain from two to three months. This campaign is a response to the pressing need for enhanced measures to protect the health and safety of outdoor workers during the peak summer months.

The launch was announced by Ms. Mona Almoayed, Chairperson of MWPS, in an online press conference on July 8, 2024.

Ms Almoayed briefed the media on the objectives and strategies of the campaign. “The well-being of our workforce is paramount. By extending the work ban, we can significantly reduce the risk of heat-related illnesses and ensure a safer working environment,” she said.

Also present at the briefing was Mr. Madhavan Kallath, General Secretary of MWPS, along with other esteemed members of the society. Mr. Kallath emphasized the importance of support of the community, employers  and the government  for the success of the campaign. “We urge everyone to join us in advocating for this crucial change. Together, we can safeguard the rights and health of our workers,” he said.
