Advocacy on Rights of Migrant Workers During COVID-19
People Forum for Human Rights, Nepal
ABOUT: As Covid-19 cases hiked in major destination countries, the uncertainty loomed over migrant workers. They were languishing in foreign land losing their jobs, were under forced labor and residing at unhealthy and crowded area with no means to survive and return home. On this scenario, People Forum filed PIL in response to support migrant workers in destination countries and to make the Government of Nepal fulfill Fundamental rights enshrined in Constitution. Responding to the heightened vulnerabilities, the People forum advocated for migrants rights providing free legal aid to victims; preparing policy paper and recommending the government for repatriation and reintegration of migrant workers.
