The exhibition, called Shining Light and co-held by the museum and the Institute for Development and Community Health, presents the stories of a typical group of migrants who are representative of thousands of others earning a living in and around Long Bien market in the capital.

 

"Day and night, they take part in hard manual labor, working as porters, rickshaw pullers, or carriers, facing many difficulties and challenges while they work," according to a press release from the museum this week.

 

"With the assistance of the community as well as other social organizations, the migrants managed to overcome violence in their lives and now have an improved standard of living."

 

The show will run until June 6 at 36 Ly Thuong Kiet Street. Entry fee is VND30, 000.
