Every day, all over the world, people make the most difficult decision of their lives; to leave their homes in search of a better life.
Throughout history, migration has been a fact of life. The reasons people migrate are varied and often complex. Some people move to new countries to improve their economic situation or to pursue their education. Others leave their countries to escape human rights abuses, such as torture, persecution, armed conflict, extreme poverty and even death.
Their journey can be full of danger and fear. Some face detention when they arrive. Many face daily racism, xenophobia, and discrimination. They are uniquely vulnerable, without the usual support structures most of us take for granted.
CARAM Asia has been working with refugees and migrants for decades. From helping to prevent refugees being returned to be persecuted to protecting the most vulnerable migrants from being exploited and abused by their employers, traffickers and smugglers.
