*July funding target achieved! Thank you so much to everyone who has generously donated money and offered support. We all appreciate it so much!*
Juni, Billy and Hayet have been stuck in Hong Kong for a year now. They have been victims of theft and subsequent government bumblings, have encountered immigration difficulties and police heavy-handedness, and are desperately hoping to be able to return home to Indonesia. Hayet is two years old and has spent half of her life in temporary accommodation, moving from one place to another, with no family beyond her parents, no friends to play with, nothing. Her parents are doing their best to resolve this situation and get their family back home, but owing to a series of events, they can't do that right now. As they are not HK residents they have extremely limited access to government services, and they have spent all their savings on surviving in HK.
They are waiting for a court case to be resolved, after which they will return home to Indonesia. Until then, they must stay in Hong Kong.
This fundraising campaign aims to help support them for the rest of their time here and allow them to survive with a certain amount of dignity. It will run for a week at the start of each month, and the final month will be to raise enough money to pay for their tickets home.
I am hoping that we can raise $15,000 a month for the rest of the time Juni, Billy and Hayet are here (I'm estimating around 3 months, but we can't be sure). The monthly target is being set at $16,500 as both this fundraising platform and PayPal charge fees. Except for the fees, all the money raised will be handed over to Juni and Billy each month, and will be used for accommodation and living expenses.
