Migrant workers are vital to Hong Kong society in supporting local families and the community. They care for us and now we need to care for them as well. Neglecting migrant workers in this time, hurts our community here in Hong Kong. As we continue to fight the global pandemic, we must continue to support those who have continued to care for us for so long. Alone in a foreign country, migrant workers in crisis do not know where to turn to. Bethune House provides a safe, secured and accessible place for them to begin to process what they experienced and support them as they pursue their cases.
Since the COVID 19, the services of Bethune House have expanded to include those staying in other hostels that we failed to accommodate and those who are in quarantine. The budgetary needs also tripled.
note：it has been the practice of hong kong people to call the migrant domestic workers of various ethnicities (migrant workers or mdw) as foreign servants, while the hong kong government would use foreign domestic helpers (fdh), however we see that, quite a few of them had been toiling in their services for hong kong for many years, and had contributed to the development of the society and economy, their works should not be go unnoticed, and they are an essential part of the population. these namings carried with them unnecessary segregation of who’s in and who’s out and exclusion, therefore we have chosen to call them as migrant domestic workers of various ethnicities (migrant workers or mdw), to state our willed vision to walk and work with the labouring workers. and let it be noted.
