Not far from SAFMA Market, is one of Kota Kinabalu's produce markets

Not far from SAFMA Market, is one of Kota Kinabalu's produce markets and the home of another group of stateless Filipino children. Over the past few years the Malaysian government has established several special task forces to address the issue of illegal immigration in Sabah. As a result, parents were deported, leaving and untold number of stateless children behind in Sabah to fend for themselves. They make money from begging, working in the markets or selling cigarettes or lottery results.
