"A home away from home in times of distress."
The 'Haven' Shelter has been operating for 8 years. From the start of its operation, the Shelter has assisted hundreds of distressed Domestic Workers in need of accommodation as well as emotional assistance and counseling. Domestic Workers like Maria, who was physically abused, stayed at the Haven for more than two months until her labor case was resolved. During her ordeal, the Shelter provided lodging and has given her some food, emotional and moral support.
The shelter is run by the New Beginnings Christian Fellowship (Hong Kong), a duly accredited Charitable Organization by the Hong Kong government, mostly composed of Domestic Workers. Lately, however, due to the steady increase of rental cost and cost of living in Hong Kong, the organization is finding it hard to provide the required funding and the Shelter is facing the imminent closure of its doors. It will be a tremendous loss on the services we offer to the community of our Domestic Workers in Hong Kong should we be forced to give up this program due to financial constraints.
Please support us in providing a temporary shelter to the many individuals like Rio, a Domestic Worker whose contract was prematurely terminated and stayed at the Haven for almost a moth while looking for another employer.
