Save the ‘Haven’ shelter for Domestic Workers in Hong Kong

Update posted by Danilo Borlado On Oct 17, 2016

Our hearts are overflowing with joy and gratitude for the unexpected generous donation from a most unexpected people. Two gentlemen, one an Indian national, Dr. Boya Mohinda, and the other a Japanese, Tom Hisano, came to the Shelter upon learning about our need and campaign. After a brief interview, they found out of the services offered by the Shelter and how it has accommodated and assisted hundreds of Domestic Workers, especially those whose Working Contracts are prematurely terminated, through the years, To help the Shelter from closing doors, the two gentlemen, who are actually business partners, committed to give $5,000.00/month in the next 6 months, subject to evaluation and continuation.

We are so grateful that we are able to house 8 ladies in one time. They were encouraged & informed about their situation. One lodger was terminated just 2 months before her contract ends. Her employers made an option whether she will terminate the contract or the employer will hold her passport. She was so afraid what would happened to her due to other threats. So she chose to break the contract & received nothing from the employer including her air ticket because she was given an advance vacation already and just received her salary. We helped her with food, give her some information & guidance what to do & free shelter stay. This is just one of the sad stories we encountered in our Haven/shelter. Thanks for helping us through your donations.

During our 10th Anniversary, we were able to gather about $20,000 to add on to our on going fundraising. Our Community Services (beauty care, health care, garage sale, food sale, photo shot) are still continuing to be offered every weekend. We are trying to solicit from supportive employers and some business sympathetic to our needs. BIG & small ways are done to SAVE OUR HAVEN. Thanks a lot for your generosity.
