More than 20 million migrant workers are estimated to be employed in the Arab States, predominantly coming from Asian countries. The majority of these migrant workers are unskilled and uneducated, coming from some of the poorest regions on earth. Some make less than US$6 per day, working twelve-hour shifts, six days per week while living in a single room with up to 12 others. Desperate to provide for their families, they are willing to leave their homes and villages for this work, sometimes not returning for years, in order to send money home.
Labor camps that house these workers are typically outside the glimmering cities they build and serve, typically segmented into similar nationalities. These temporary homes away from home for these laborers are a melting pot of world religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Sikhism.
Nomads is a ministry that equips impoverished, migrant workers, bringing hope to those suffering from addiction, mental illness, depression and anxiety. Networking within their labor camp communities to meet the physical and spiritual needs of migrant workers, Nomads is a ministry that stands with the oppressed.
Equip an underground ministry of impoverished migrant workers, who come from some of the most oppressed, persecuted places on the planet, to bring hope back to their communities.
