Many under-aged children migrated to find work outside their home country across Southeast Asia. Geographically, it is common for young boys and girls from Laos cross border illegally to Thailand for short-term work. Little need they know there are potential risks they will encounter. A Lao boy named Chai, 14, was one of the migrant workers who ended up being exploited by the employer and was prevented to come back home. The boy’s life was saved and he soon returned to his family through a collaboration across borders between Terre des Hommes Netherlands’ local partners and local authorities.
