The Migrant Workers Protection Society (MWPS)

Migrant Workers Protection Society (MWPS) was established in 2005 under license 25/C/AC (ج/أج/ ٢٥) from the Ministry of Social Development.

Our Mission Statement is to seek to help expatriate workers in Bahrain achieve their basic human rights in accordance with internationally recognized standards.

We are the only local, registered Non-Govermental Organization (NGO) in Bahrain that works exclusively in support of expatriate workers of all nationalities.

All of our members work on a voluntary basis around the clock to support the plights of migrant workers. We currently have more than 50 members from Australia, Bahrain, Britain, Canada, Ethiopia, India, Italy, Kenya, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and the US.

We receive referrals for support almost every day, from a variety of sources including from workers themselves, from members of the public, from embassies, from officials at the Ministry of Labour, from police stations and from Detention Centre and Immigration officials.
