AS the Covid-19 pandemic grips the world throughout this year, governments had been forced to restrict the movement of their citizens to stem the tide of infection, instituting lockdowns throughout the worldwide.
Here in Malaysia, the government’s movement control order (MCO) has left an indelible mark on our daily lives, as most daily activities came to a halt.
Among the badly impacted communities were the already struggling migrant workers who sent money home. They would normally do that over-the-counter at any money transfer operator outlet, all of which were closed during the MCO.
As the situation became dire worldwide and restrictions became tighter, foreign employees turn to their employers for assistance, prompting many Malaysian companies and households to search for alternative solutions of sending either their maid’s or workers’ salaries home during the widespread global lockdown.
