A fundraising page has been set up by Anti-Slavery International, in conjunction with CNN, to raise money for the treatment and care of Shwygar Mullah, a domestic worker for Hannibal Gadhafi in Libya who was found severely scalded by boiling water.
CNN is helping aid agencies arrange for Shwygar to be taken to an international burn clinic for treatment. It is estimated that it will take up to eight months for Shwygar 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 Shwygar’s care will be used by Anti-Slavery International, the world’s oldest human rights organization, which works to protect domestic workers from abuse and slavery across the world.
