Christian Conference of Asia

CCA

Migrant workers bear the brunt of the COVID-19 crisis

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that the world is grappling with today, the Christian Conference of Asia (CCA) initiated a series of virtual conferences focusing on pertinent issues and challenges related to the COVID-19 crisis.

The first of the CCA Webinar Series was held on 30 April 2020 on the topic ‘Plight of Migrant Workers amidst the COVID-19 Crisis’.


“Among the most vulnerable in wake of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Asia and the Arabian Gulf are migrant workers – especially those who are semi-skilled workers, those employed in domestic work, and those in labour camps. Internal migrant workers and overseas workers across Asia are among the many who are bearing the worst brunt of the pandemic’s consequences,” panellists of the virtual conference opined.
