One of the largest groups of foreign workers in the United Arab Emirates comes from the Philippines.

An estimated 600,000 Filipinos live in the country, making up about 12% of the population and a new paper targeted at this sizeable community has been launched.

The newspaper's owner hopes to pay for the paper through advertising revenue, but says it's not just a business venture - with many Filipinos working in low-paid industries, the paper's designed to help educate them about life and their rights in the region and to try and stop unscrupulous employers taking advantage.

But after a similar project failed five years ago, can this one be a success? Simon Atkinson finds out.
