Flower farm workers awareness on their rights
JEF aims to educate worker’s on their rights especially those working within the flower farms industry. This has been necessitated by the need to create public awareness on their health which could be affected by exposure to chemicals which they work with and are exposed to on a daily basis. Majority of the employees have been retired on medical grounds after having been exposed to different chemicals over a long period of time. JEF’s aim is to create awareness and enlighten these workers to ensure correct use of PPE’s and to keep vigilant to ensure that they seek appropriate medical intervention early enough to reduce the number of deaths associated with chemical poisoning.
JEF is working with various partners both locally and internationally to assist the workers to seek legal redress and timely medical intervention.
