Andrew Kooman is gearing up for the release of Hope in Action – a new book detailing the unimaginable stories of migrants and refugees seeking work and a better life in Malaysia. As is chronicled in the book, foreign workers are often promised contracts in their home countries by outsourcing agencies.
But when they arrive in Malaysia, they don’t receive the promised wages. Many find themselves in the middle of dire circumstances as they try to carve out new lives for themselves in a foreign land.
