Shweyga Mullah’s Fundraising is underway. Over 250,000 Birr raised so far

CNN reports that it was inundated with offers to assist Shweyga Mullah, the 30-year-old migrant worker who had served as a nanny for Hannibal Ghadafi’s family. A fundraising effort is underway to raise money for her treatment and care. Shweyga says she was burned with boiling water multiple times by Hannibal Ghadafi’s wife, the former Lebanese model, Aline Skaf.

The fundraising page is set up by the world’s oldest human rights organisation Anti-Slavery International and CNN – whose news-crew discovered her on Sunday while visiting a beachfront mansion in western Tripoli owned by the Gadhafi family. She was found abandoned inside the luxury compound.

The website notes: “CNN is helping aid agencies arrange for Shweyga to be taken to an international burn clinic for treatment. It is estimated that it will take up to eight months for Shweyga to recuperate and the money raised will go to paying for any extra care she needs, including her living costs and flights. Money raised beyond the amount needed for Shweyga’s care will be used by Anti-Slavery International, the world’s oldest human rights organisation, which works to protect domestic workers from abuse and slavery across the world.”
