Today is The International father’s day Day. We would like to celebrate the occasion with you by sharing some important statistics on migrant workers.
According to The World Bank analysts, the amount of family remittances is expected to increase by 4.2% in 2022, reaching $630 billion.
In 2021, the amount of money that migrant workers sent to low- and middle-income countries amounted to $589 billion, 7.3% more than the previous year.
Labour migrants from India ($89 billion), Mexico ($54 billion), China ($53 billion), the Philippines ($37 billion) and Egypt ($32 billion) transferred most of the funds in 2021, while immigrants from Ukraine sent home $18 billion.
Almost 60% of labour migrants are men aged 24 to 50. Most of them have families, wives and children, who are staying behind in their home countries while the fathers set out to work abroad.
The figures above show how hardworking these men are, and how much helping their families matters to them. And they’re making it work! What they do is truly heroic.
