A Nepali a Day Dies Working in Malaysia

Aug 25, 2016 | Views: 286

Dear friends around the world,

I was quite surprised by this article. Nepali and all foreign workers do not leave their country to work in another country because they are doing well or able to survive. Obviously they are not doing well and due to dire circumstances they must leave their beloved family, friends, culture, towns, homes and country to go somewhere else to work. Nepalese people and anyone are obviously human beings and have feelings like anyone else. They can feel pleasure and pain, hurt and disappointment and happiness and intense sadness. Put ourselves in their position where they are forced to go abroad to an alien culture, new people and difficult working conditions due to poverty. The pay is not very much either. If they stay home in Nepal, they have no money, if they go abroad the years of separation from family and friends does take a toll on their mind and the minds of their family. Once they are with employers, they are  under the complete mercy of their employers due to language, visa and economics. So it is up to the employer to be kind to them. If they are mistreated, we add to the sufferings of another human being which is not necessary. Many times the man who is working in the foreign country is the sole bread winner and if something should happen to him, the whole family will become homeless back in Nepal. So many will suffer.

I think foreign workers of all backgrounds going to many countries suffer very much not just in Malaysia. I’ve heard of horror stories coming from many countries. I don’t know how accurate this article is regarding Malaysia, but I am sure there are many fatalities. No one wishes to lose a family member especially the sole bread winner. I guess the reason I reproduced this write up here is strictly for educational purposes and when we understand their plight, we can find it in our heart to be kinder to all foreign workers and all human beings. Speak nicely to them. Give them good food, clean decent place to sleep, proper clothing, water and toilets. Show them some respect, explain things to them and make them feel that your association with them for the next few years of work will be pleasant. Of course sometimes we do meet difficult and dishonest foreign workers who are not nice and that needs to be accounted for, but in general we depend on their labor very much and they depend on the salaries we provide. So we are interdependent. Why not be nice and make this work relationship pleasant. Just because we pay them does not make us better or superior. Be kind to them because they are far from home, alone, poverty stricken, unexposed and at our mercies. Be kind to them because it is a good example to show our children we are kind to all human beings no matter their background. Giving pain to others brings no benefit to anyone. Be kind to all beings no matter who they are.

This article is an eye opener indeed. May all beings not suffer and we never add to their suffering.

A Nepali a Day Dies Working in Malaysia

Sonia Awale | Today 11:38 am

When the Nepal Embassy in Kuala Lumpur made the shocking revelation last year that nine of its migrant workers were dying every week in Malaysia, it surprised everyone, except perhaps the workers themselves.

For them, dying on the job in Malaysia has become a part of life.

Embassy records show that nearly 3,000 Nepali workers have died in Malaysia in the past 12 years, 166 of them in the five months between July and November last year alone.

For that period, nine Nepali migrant workers on average died every week in Malaysia, according to the embassy.

Most of them died from what health experts call Sudden Unexpected Death Syndrome (SUDS).

“Just a few months back, another fellow Nepali worker simply dropped dead while walking to work,” said Dilip Malla, 43, who is employed as a security guard in Damansara. “We later learned it was a heart attack. It was so sudden.”

Doctors and labour activists are puzzled at the abnormally high mortality rate from SUDS among Nepali overseas contract workers not just in Malaysia but also in Qatar, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and other Gulf countries.

Although research is sparse and autopsies are rarely performed on dead migrants, the high fatality rate is attributed to overwork in hot and humid conditions, excessively air-conditioned living quarters, worry about family back home, as well as stress from exploitation and low pay.

 

Reduced earnings due to falling ringgit

In Malaysia, an additional anxiety is reduced earnings due to the falling ringgit, which has continued to plunge as the net petroleum exporter grapples with low oil prices.

Nearly 20 percent of Nepal’s 28 million population works abroad: mainly in India, Malaysia, and the Gulf, and remittances from workers abroad makes up a quarter of the country’s GDP.

With 700,000 employed in plantations and factories, Malaysia has the highest number of Nepali migrant workers and the earnings they send home makes up 40 percent of Nepal’s total overseas remittances.

But the country also registers a disproportionate number of deaths of Nepalis.

About 1,500 workers fly out of Kathmandu every day, and this number is increasing because of the earthquake in April 2015, as political instability and the five-month Indian blockade of Nepal brought the local economy to a standstill.

Aegile Fernandez, programme director at Tenaganita which defends rights of migrant workers in Malaysia, says death of foreign workers are often overlooked despite the shocking figures.

“We see high suicide rate and several cases of sudden death. The government should be more transparent and in-depth research should be carried out. Unless that is done, we won’t know why they are dying,” she said.

A government hospital doctor who treats migrant workers, who asked not to be named, said most sudden deaths are a result of cardiac arrest.

“However I can’t say for certain what is causing the sudden deaths. We never carried out any detailed investigation,” she said.

Though she added that the influx of migrant workers has brought diseases like tuberculosis (TB) and malaria, which are rare in Malaysia.

Last year, the Malaysian government decided to withdraw subsidies to non-citizens for medical fees, and increased medical fees for non-nationals by 30 percent. The Health Ministry also puts a limit on prescription drugs for foreigners.

Public health experts however argue that this actually adds health risks to Malaysians, even if it does save the government some extra expenditures.

Besides infections, migrant workers are also not aware of the precautions they need to take in the extreme climate conditions, which differ from temperate Nepal.

Working conditions in plantations and factories are often harsh, with the dangers of dehydration and inadequate nutrition.

“The Nepalis might not be used to such long hours of work, under scorching heat but they aren’t also given proper health care and training beforehand,” added Aegile.

 

Work up to 18 hours a day

Shamser Nepali who runs clinics in Kathmandu that provide health check-ups to migrant workers said: “In Malaysia, migrant labourers work up to 18 hours a day and drink cheap spurious alcohol before they sleep and they die in their sleep.”

Last January, a riot broke out at a plywood factory in Kedah when Nepali workers protested the death of a colleague who had difficulty breathing and died because he wasn’t taken to hospital in time.

Protesting workers were arrested and five deported. A month earlier, two Nepalis in the same factory had also died of SUDS.

In another case, more than 1,000 Nepali workers protested at the factory in Johor when a fellow worker died due to lack of health care last August. Some 50 workers were arrested and most of them sent back to Nepal.

“The rate at which Nepali workers are dying abroad is alarming because they are too young to die,” says Ganesh Gurung, Nepal’s foremost expert on migration and remittance economy.

“Our mortality rate could be high because of deaths of new-borns, children, the elderly, and chronically-ill patients. But if young and healthly people die at this rate, we must find out why it is happening,” he said.

Figures show that most of the deaths of Nepali overseas contract workers occur in Malaysia.

Between July 2014 and July 2015, a total of 1,002 Nepali workers died, with 425 Nepali in Malaysia. Second was Saudi Arabia and third, Qatar, according to figures from the Foreign Employment Promotion Board in Kathmandu.

Qatar, which has 550,000 workers from Nepal, had only 178 deaths but more than half of them due to “sudden heart attacks”.

The Qatari authorities have said that this corresponds to the national average for heart attack deaths in Nepal, but public health experts argue that the fatality rate is disproportionate because they involve healthy young males and is nearly 10 times higher than the death rate from heart attacks for that demographic back in Nepal.

In any case, as Malaysia continue to play host to thousands of job-seeking Nepali, something may need to be done so that the country only contributes to the earnings remittance, and not to an ever increasing death rate.

    It is shocking to know that 1 Nepali a day dies working in Malaysia. There are so many foreign workers in this country and this actually show badly as how we care for the workers. Foreign workers are here helping our country to fill up the vacancy in construction, agriculture, industrial and many other segments. Without them we may not be able to achieve our development target as we need huge human resources. Therefore, we have to take care of their well being and not abuse them as many unscrupulous employer will take advantage on them in order to manage cost. They are human beings just like us. We should have mutual respect of each other. Therefore I hope we Malaysian do not discriminate foreign workers and don’t look down on them.

  2. Kb Thapa on Apr 12, 2017 at 6:02 am

    Most of the Nepali died from (Sudden Unexpected Death Syndrome) There was never been proper investigation done on these cases, if your a foreign worker you are not human as simple is that who cares. our Nepal government just sucking money from worker only. Just said sudden death how can be just soo simple as like that.The high fatality rate is attributed to overwork in hot and humid conditions, air-conditioned living quarters, worse then compared other country , on top of that loans, family and stress.

    I am been very lucky to in kechara dharma center. we have more then 30 Nepalese who work here. Rinpoche very kindly takes care of us and make cure we have enough money, good food,good rooms, medical and most importantly gives us dharma . Rinpoche personally takes care of us with beautiful Malaysian. we are always be very grateful to Rinpoche and kechara…

    I have never heard of anyone speaking up about the rights of Nepalis until Tsem Rinpoche mentioned it in the year 2005 during a visit to Nepal.
    Not many people speak about the immigrant workers or their welfare. Immigrant workers are not keen to work in countries other than their own, if they could have helped it. They do not have a choice hence they do what must be done and that is find employment outside of their country.

  4. Ron Wong on Nov 7, 2016 at 12:53 am

    Having the highest death rate of Nepalese workers in Malaysia is certainly not something that we should be proud of. Based on the report, most of the death toll are from young adults with causes related to poor health & mental well beings.

    As a host country & employers of these foreign workers, we are responsible to take care of both their physical & mental well beings by providing the proper working & living conditions, safety, tools, training & etc. in order to achieve a win-win situation that will benefits both parties & countries in the long term. They are our fellow human being though from different country, colour, culture & background but deep down inside we all are the same, wanting happiness & not suffering. From a spiritual point of view, we must treat them with respect, loving kindness & care which can help them improve their emotional wellbeing to relief stresses from both work & worrying of their families, love ones & friends back home.

    I sincerely hope that all employers would look into these issues & resolve with immediate efforts.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing & reminding us to always show care & kindness to those in needs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. The death rate of the Nepali workers are alarming. I think our Malaysian government should do some investigation and find out the reason behind their deaths. Like what Rinpoche said earlier, employers too play an important part. They could talk nicely, give them proper food and place to stay so that they can work properly. Maybe employers should send their workers for monthly or half-yearly health check-up. Rinpoche also said before that every being has been our mothers. That is why, we need to be nice and kind to everyone we meet.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    Alarming and sad to know that a Nepali a day dies working in Malaysia.Nepalese people and anyone are obviously human beings and have feelings like anyone else.They are forced to leave their home country,to go to a new country for a living .Most of the death is attributed to overwork in hot and humid conditions, poor living quarters,low pay as well as stress from exploitation and in accident while at work.The employer at times treated the foreign workers badly,which should’nt happen,They should be well treated and given better working condition.To be kind to all human beings no matter who they are.Well said by Rinpoche.Hope the government can do something to help in reducing the
    deaths of Nepali rate down.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article .

  7. Lew on Oct 23, 2016 at 7:56 am

    I fully agree with Rinpoche that we need to be kind towards foreign worker because they literally risk their lives and work in a foreign land with many unknown and at the mercy of their employee. Given a choice, nobody would want to be separated from their family, go to an unknown place and work in harsh condition.

    I have heard stories of dishonest foreign worker, but I think there are even more stories of unscrupulous employers. Like the case of Kedah incident related in the article, may be the workplace is not hygiene or toxic or something else that may have caused the high death rates. Government authorise should setup investigation teams to make sure the environment is in a good condition for the foreign workers, both physically and mentally. Why? Because it is interdependent. We depend very much on their labor everyday.

    I think the bottom line here is we should be kind to foreign workers.

  8. Echeah on Oct 18, 2016 at 1:42 pm

    I often see foreign workers perched high on top of advertisement poles and try to spot if they have their safety harness on and realize there are none. I grimace everytime I see that. I think it’s either their employers don’t care since their life is cheap, or the workers themselves have a poor safety culture and refuse to wear them. Maybe both. I remember in my workplace, when we set up new plants in some less developed countries, it was an uphill battle trying to train the local workers to follow the work and safety culture of a multinational co. All procedures and facilities were provided for their safety but they just refused to use them, taking short-cuts instead.

    The problem is an intricate one, not just a matter of employers ill-treating their foreign labour.

    The local people don’t want to touch the 3D jobs. This is true not only in Malaysia. You see the same thing in Western countries. You have migrant workers taking over and more and more of them come to seek greener pastures. At some point, the locals raise the alarm. Like, if you go to China town these days, it is no longer China town. You see this pattern in the recent case of Brexit as well as the racial rumblings in Australia.

    As concern grows, the governments enact new policies on migrant workers and it becomes more difficult or costs more to hire. Then they have a way around this problem, illegal migration. Human traffickers then prey on those people hoping to migrate to greener pastures. These people are then exploited. They have no recourse as they were illegal in the first place. It is a very unfortunate situation and not easy to solve.

  9. Stella Cheang on Oct 6, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    It is very sad to know that foreign labors who came to work in Malaysia suffer physically and emotionally. Premature death among Nepalese workers are high as a consequence of the long working hours combined with poor living conditions. While Malaysians are the philanthropists that everyone see us as, in actual, most of us are indifferent towards the maltreatment of foreign labors working in this country. Therefore it indirectly endorses exploitation of people of a different race, religion and creed. Thank you for this article that brings awareness to the plight of foreign labor in this country.

  10. Pastor David Lai on Sep 24, 2016 at 3:16 am

    This is a side of Malaysian employers that we didn’t know or didn’t want to know. These segment of people who employ Nepalese workers are looking to exploit them and worse of all, do not provide adequate healthcare and decent living conditions.

    We often pass judgement with people from other countries who exploit others or who are cruel towards others. But people rather turn a blind eye on our fellow countrymen who do the same. Very sad to read this.

    Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche known as Milarepa

    As is clearly seen in Helmut Gassner’s account, two of the most influential and trailblazing Tibetan lamas who taught in the West both practised Dorje Shugden and held him in high regard. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was not only once the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery but was a well-known meditator, debator, tantric adept and teacher of thousands of monks and laypeople all over the world.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: You’ve got mail

    Rinpoche, if people take the time to write and express their thoughts and feelings, that is something that should be appreciated and respected. And if people confide in Rinpoche, that information is always treated as sacred because it is not always easy for people to trust someone else enough to open up to them.

    China is one of the most powerful countries in the world nowadays and many countries had chosen to be in China’s good books. It is only a matter of time where all the Tibetan government’s supporter will stop supporting them and be on China’s side.

    Let’s face it. The struggle for Tibet’s independence has been on-going for 60 years but there is no progress at all. Now, even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is telling the Tibetans to go for Umaylam instead of Rangzen. However, Umaylam requires their cooperation with the Chinese government.

    It is good for Tibetans or Tibetan government to befriend China because they will need their mercy to get back to Tibet because China has all the reasons for not letting the Tibetans go back to Tibet. They certainly do not need Tibetans.

    This is something I don’t understand. In the beginning, the 14th Dalai Lama was practising Dorje Shugden and he did not say anything about Dorje Shugden. Suddenly in 1996, he banned everyone from practising Dorje Shugden saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Dorje Shugden is a practice given to the Dalai Lama by his teacher, Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche would never harm the Dalai Lama by giving the Dalai Lama the practice of an evil spirit. This does not make sense at all. Is the Dalai Lama implying his teacher was not good and wanted to harm him when he said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit?

    Voyage to the Colossus of Rhodes

    In school, I remember we had a competition to make anything we wanted with the sole condition that it had to use LED lights. It was around the time that out of all the various figures of ancient Greek mythology, my fascination with Medusa was at its highest. Her story is an interesting one. She was once a beautiful maiden who, cursed by the goddess Athena, was made to look so terrible that the mere sight of her would turn anyone to stone. Over time her anger overtook her and she became a scourge, plaguing mankind. The demi-god Perseus slayed her and used her dreadful head to turn to stone monsters, beasts and other men alike in his self-serving yet glorified journey which ended with the founding of the ancient city-state Mycenae.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: Putting down roots

    Rinpoche is never interested in secular activities just for the sake of it, but always uses his knowledge, interest and experience to see how he can improve the lives of those around him and how he can bring Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to the next level in terms of serving others. So for Rinpoche, a vegetable farm is not just a vegetable farm, but an activity that can bring Dharma to others.

Reading this post story is really amazing how relying on Setrap Protector and having trust and faith in our Guru has help Dato Eric Tan in his business . Dato’ Eric Tan’s achievements today is truly amazing all due his trust and never give up what ever happened.

Edie was so scared and just needed is a hug and pad from some kind soul . Bronwyne Mirkovich is so compassionate , kind for saving Edie’s life. Thank you too Edie Gobbie from the American Maltese Association for helping with this wonderful project to rescue animals. Life is so precious nor matter what it is , it is still a life……human or doggie. Dogs are our best friends, never harm, abuse or hurt them.

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this auspicious post with us. It is amazing that Kechara has the chance to make such offerings to the high lamas and monks in the monastery. This is a clear example of the generosity of Rinpoche that wishes each and every one of us to adopt.

    Making offerings to the sangha is very meritorious and we can collect a lot of merit with such actions because we are directly supporting the growth of Dharma and those high lamas are Buddhas. Seeing such pictures warms my heart and I rejoice to see those happy faces of those monks who received those very much needed offerings.

    Wow ….. there have been so many UFO sightings in so many different countries. There are altogether eight UFO sightings within 10 days witnessed by people across the globe. They saw shiny unidentified flying objects flying past in the sky as reported. Very interesting….. strange object sparked theories of possible extra terrestrial sightings and they do definitely exist after all. Many UFO sightings have been reported in the last decades yet scientist or researchers yet to confirm the details or evidence to proof it. But the strange sightings in different countries at the same month could not be wrong as we know “they’ have been watching at the earth from some where up there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing …..simple amazing caught on camera by those eye witness.

    There may have been a chance for a civilization to start billions of years before life began on Earth as discovered by scientists. Several discoveries and theories from some of the greatest minds in science point to the likelihood that there is something beyond out there in the universe. I do believe that we are not alone in the universe. Well, there many on going research that has taken place to look for signs of extra terrestrial life such as aliens. Scientist have been using telescope and specimen data to radios to detect and send communication signals. Currently, scientist do not have any evidence to support that aliens exist but the research work still going on with the discovery of a varieties of beings in the universal . Stories of the sighting of aliens and other species by eye witnesses yet to proof their existence. Researcher and scientists have not given up hope to research for evidence. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Buddha Manjushri is very compassionate. He will manifest in the forms that can benefit us. In this case, he manifested as an enlightened Dharma protector to help us remove our obstacles so we can practise and have realiation on Buddha’s teachings.

    I have read many stories about how Dorje Shugden has helped people including Tsem Rinpoche. Kechara is growing and flourishing because of the assistance from Dorje Shugden. As long as our motivation is right, Dorje Shugden will provide a conducive environment to fulfil our wishes.

    Rinpoche’s bond with animals is even more palpable. Abandoned dogs find not only shelter but a loving home wherever Rinpoche is. Injured and unwanted birds find healing and a safe haven created to resemble their natural habitat. Fish are given clean, pure water and plenty of food. Even insects are not forgotten. Most important of all, their surroundings are designed to leave positive Dharma imprints in their mind streams and help them gain good rebirths.

    My mother’s White Tara

    The previous Telo Rinpoche had lived in Mongolia and during the Communist upheaval in his country, he was imprisoned along with many other monks and religious figures. Telo Rinpoche prayed to this image of White Tara, which he had with him and in the middle of the night, his cell doors miraculously swung open and he was able to just walk out. Later, with the help of some American scientists, he escaped and travelled to the United States where he connected with the Mongolian-Kalmyk community there, which included my parents.

    “Rinpoche’s drive to create a lasting mental change in a person’s life is nothing but pure compassion. Rinpoche certainly doesn’t get anything out of the person changing to become a better person, in fact, it often takes an emotional and physical toll on Rinpoche himself. Yet, Rinpoche goes out of his way to help his students and others to the best of his ability. Rinpoche does this in a number of ways, I’ll only touch on a few” ~ Pastor Niral Patel

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

After the Bird Liberation, we proceeded with Dorje Shugden puja. Just before we started our puja, Pastor Patsy gave us a short Dharma Sharing. Pastor spoke about Dharma practice in these days and reminded us to always keep our samaya with Guru intact. To honour our promises, reduce our worldly activities and practice Dharma strongly. Thank you Pastor for the valuable advice~Jacinta, KPSG
