So far, the opposition have held out little hope for migrant workers and refugees, observes Angeline Loh.
It’s hard to imagine what it must be like to be a refugee. To see your village torn apart by war. To escape under horrific conditions to an unfamiliar land where you don’t speak the language. To be alone, surrounded by strangers, not knowing who you can trust, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. Yet for thousands of refugees in Malaysia and millions more worldwide, this is the story of their lives.
