Guest Workers Leave Behind Big Houses, Ghost Neighborhoods
Over the last decades, growing economic hardships forced people in cities and villages around the world to leave their hometowns to find work in other countries.

But often, these houses remain empty, making many communities look like ghost towns. Faiza Elmasry has the story. Faith Lapidus narrates.
