Donate to Bethune House and keep this refuge for distressed helpers open

6 Nov

The Bethune House Migrant Women’s Refuge is a registered charitable institution under the companies ordinance in Hong Kong. It was established in 1986 under the Mission for Migrant Workers to provide charitable assistance and social counseling to the needy migrant workers and their families. Today it runs two shelters which last year served about 700 foreign domestic workers.

Bethune House is funded through donations from local churches, migrant organizations, service institutions, and concerned individuals in Hong Kong and overseas. Recently their overseas funding dried up after the churches involved focused on less developed territories. Read more about Bethune House‘s plight in this SCMP article.

To keep Bethune House going a donation appeal has gone out to raise $1Million in order to continue their work and Mission among the abused and distressed women migrant workers and their children.

    Hello

    How can I donate to Bethune House, and get a receipt? I would like to apply for my company to provide matching funds. Do you have an email address for them? Susan
