Tamil Nadu Women's Forum set up an exclusive helpline to help migrant workers verify the validity of all their documents before they leave the country.

KL- fueled by migrant workersThe helpline was formed at a time when TNWF's Malaysian-partner Teneganita / CARAM-Asia received increasing complaints of forgery from Indian migrants. In fact, Irene fernandez, chairperson, Tenaganita/ CARAM-Asia was herself in the city to discuss the problem of 'standard' migrants in Malaysia with the officials concerned, recruiting agents as well as the welfare organisations.

"In the past three months, we have received complains of forged documents from at least 375 Indians. As the recruitment agents have cheated them, most of them are camping outside the Indian High Commission, hoping to be deported. They have neither money nor legal documents,"

said Fernandez. Dec.20, 2002-
