Every year, thousands of Bangladeshi students are trafficked into Malaysia by agents promising them a college education and work opportunities.

Many of these students and their families pay a fortune to these agents, sometimes as much as four lakhs (RM21,000).

To raise the money, some sell prized possessions, some sell land, some take loans and some remortgage their homes.

However, most of you reading this in Malaysia will know that the agents are liars. Most of you were victims of those lies. Most of you have wasted the same amount of money and the best years of your life because of those lies.

We want you to know that you are not alone. We at R.AGE and The Star have been working hard to make your stories heard, and to ensure that you get the help and support you need.

Our latest project, Student/Trafficked, aims to show everyone the injustice you have faced in Malaysia, and to get all concerned Malaysians involved in helping you. And if we can’t get everyone to help, we’ll at least get them to understand.

And remember – you are not alone. Today, Malaysia stands with you.
