Country/Region

Malaysia, with its booming economy and surrounded largely by poorer nations, attracts high numbers of migrants. Many of them come to find work in construction or agriculture. Others have fled violence and persecution in their home countries, like Myanmar or Indonesia's Aceh province. They often live in a twilight zone, with no official status and no rights to fall back on. They also have difficulty accessing health services.
