Migrant workers 'need more support'
Regina Biswas, 24, a tribal Paharia Catholic maid said, “We need support from Christian religious and political leaders to ensure our regular pay and promotion.”
Spiritual and pastoral care is also a major concern.
“We have no opportunity to attend prayer service or masses at our workplace. We can attend mass only on Christmas and Easter. The Church should see if we can attend mass at least once a month,” said Shefali Biswas, 48, another tribal Paharia Catholic maid.
