Story

Donate NOW to double your impact!

All public donations until 30 November 2020 will be matched! We are grateful to the Fu Tak Iam Foundation Limited for their matching sponsorship of the #BridgeTheGapHK initiative!*

Please help us maintain critical services at our Community Centre and continue our Community Empowerment work!

The children and women we serve need our help and protection now more than ever. If PathFinders is not able to help them, no one is.

WHY?

Like many charities in Hong Kong, the socio-political unrest and ongoing COVID-19 crisis has had a profound impact on our fundraising. We will not be able to hold our annual Fundraising Dinner - which was set to raise HKD3million - so we’ve already made significant budget cuts this year. Without additional donations to help bridge our funding gaps, we face scaling back our essential client services, as well as community outreach and education activities which are vital to prevent migrant mothers and their babies from falling into crisis

From Jan to Apr we experienced an 80% increase in calls to our crisis hotline, and so far this year we have seen a 32% increase in new cases. Our five Case Managers are well over capacity, juggling more than 170 open cases involving over 200 children. Feedback from our beneficiaries also shows increased challenges accessing basic supplies and food. 

To maintain our community empowerment and awareness efforts, we are currently supporting 58 outstanding Ambassadors - Foreign Domestic Worker community leaders who organise regular outreach initiatives to empower their peers and identify mothers and babies who need our help. With social distancing becoming a norm, our Ambassadors are even more critical; allowing us to stay connected with the community through their network, even when we cannot physically conduct outreach activities ourselves. We aim to have trained a total of 80 Ambassadors by the end of the year - if we can bridge our funding gaps.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We understand this is an unprecedented time, and everyone has been impacted. If you are able to and would like to help, please consider making a donation - no amount is too small to make a difference.

Please help us to bridge current funding gaps, so we can continue to bridge the gaps in Hong Kong society where babies go undocumented and unprotected.

100% of funds raised will go towards essential services, our Community Centre, empowerment work and other critical expenses. Receipts will be issued by PathFinders 6-8 weeks following donation. *Matched funding by the Fu Tak Iam Foundation Limited will be capped at HK$600,000 and programme-designated donations will not be eligible.

On behalf of the babies, children and women we serve, thank you so much for your generosity. 

Best Wishes, 
The PathFinders Team
