IOM, USAID premiere video series to protect Bangladeshi migrants
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)  premiered a series of videos on Sunday to protect Bangladeshi migrants from human trafficking and exploitation. The videos were developed by IOM X – USAID and IOM’s innovative campaign to prevent human trafficking and exploitation – during a series of participatory workshops that took place in Narsingdi between January and August this year. The IOM X Roadshow took place with the help of IOM X’s partners – Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment, Ministry of Home Affairs, US State Department, USAID, District Employment and Manpower Office (DEMO), Bureau of Manpower Employment and Training (BMET) and Ovibashi Karmi Unnayan Program (OKUP). Bangladeshi migrants are at risk of facing mistreatment from their employers like delayed or no salary, long working hours, restrictions on mobility, breached contracts, no medical treatment, physical and sexual exploitation and poor working conditions if they do not have correct visa. According to IOM, over 11.1m Bangladeshis have migrated abroad for work since 1970s.
