A Helping Hand for Our Fellow Sri Lankans
We visit Ibaraki Prefecture where 2 Sri Lankan businessmen work to support their compatriots in need. At his welding factory, Chamila trains his all-Sri-Lankan staff in valuable skills that will help them through the difficulties brought on by the pandemic. Meanwhile, Sineth provides food and shelter to fellow Sri Lankans and assists them in getting a visa to work in farming. We also meet Korean Paek Sumin, who works for an automaker's subsidiary to broaden the clientele of their car sharing service.
Ibaraki's community of around 3,000 Sri Lankans has its own dedicated Buddhist temple
Though business is slow due to the pandemic, Chamila hasn't laid off any of his factory's employees
