A photo of a Saudi man welcoming back his family driver has circulated online, and residents are all praise for this local’s actions. It’s no surprise that with the number of domestic workers in the Kingdom, sometimes working for years with one family that they end up being part of those families as well.
This isn’t a non-common situation as nannies and expats have been helping raise families across the region for a long time now. However, appreciation and gratitude for these humble workers have been a recurring theme in the Gulf recently, and we can’t say we hate it.
After all, these people deserve to be recognised for their hard work
This video is just a good example of taking care of our extended families through such gestures.

“A respectable and rare act. The majority don’t care about others feelings.”
