Migrant workers: Dedicated centre to help ease their hassles

The Daily Star, Bangladesh, 16 April 2022 - The government has established a dedicated centre for migrant workers to reduce the hassles they face while migrating abroad and returning home.

Built on over 140 kathas of land in the capital's Khilkhet, the "Bangabandhu Wage Earners' Centre" will provide outbound and inbound workers with accommodation at affordable prices.

The centre will hold pre-departure briefings for outbound workers on destination countries and different services offered by the Wage Earners' Welfare Board (WEWB). It will also brief returnee migrants on reintegration for socio-economic development.

The initiative has been taken marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, according to information available on the WEWB website.

Shoaib Ahmad Khan, director (finance and welfare) of WEWB, said the centre will start providing full-fledged services after Ramadan.

He said migrant workers who need to stay in Dhaka before their flights or after returning home from abroad can get accommodation at the centre after showing necessary documents.
