Asia Pacific Mission to Migrants, a sister organization of Mission For Migrant Workers, recently held an art contest for migrants to create campaign posters for the ratification of ILO C189. If you don't know about ILO C189, you can find the text here or the much shorter Wikipedia summary here.

Foreign domestic workers constantly impress me with their indefatigable strength, hope, and generosity. I am equally amazed by their creative expressions of their struggle.
