Migrant workers face many difficulties when they go abroad: low wages which barely cover remittances that they send home to help their families, difficult working conditions and unpaid or invisible overtime in addition to emotional suffering and loneliness from family separation.

MWR’s mission is the respect, by national and international agencies, of:

  • the rights to liberty, to physical and psychological integrity, and to non-discrimination based on the country of origin
  • the right to freely change employers at all times
  • the right to receive study/work permits for children/spouse, and
  • the right to access permanent legal status, of every human being admitted under the status of ‘temporary foreign worker’
