<p>Many areas of Thailand continue to experience extensive flooding. These floods have impacted on hundreds of thousands of migrants working in Thailand. Many migrants impacted by these floods don&rsquo;t currently posses identification papers as their papers were destroyed, lost in water or confiscated by employers. As a result, these workers remain in or are not able to travel outside of flooded areas and/or their registered provinces. Other migrants have had their employment immediately terminated once the flood waters arrived and many more had no choice but to return to Myanmar.</p>
