Migrant Workers Right to Redress Coalition (R2R) is concerned about several alarming issues affecting migrant workers, domestic workers, refugees, asylum seekers, foreign spouses and others in our country.

The coalition has noted the various press reports about the relatively high incidence of Covid-19 infections within some migrant communities and places of detention. At the same time, recent reports have also highlighted the appalling conditions many women, men, children and families in these communities face. See video here.
