Each year PathFinders clients’ welcome hundreds of new babies into the world. To ensure they have everything they need during their first few weeks, we provide all expectant clients with a box of essential baby supplies, including nappies, baby clothes, maternity pads, bibs, baby oil and more.

In April, Deloitte hosted a staff volunteer event at their offices to help us prepare the supplies for 30 such baby supplies boxes, and packaged and wrapped each of the boxes ready for delivery. They also included some personal messages to congratulate the new mothers. Thank you, Deloitte for hosting such a meaning event and for the amazing enthusiasm of your team!

New Community Partnership with KidsDressSmart!

Kids Dress Smart

We are always excited when developing a new community partnership. This month we are delighted to share news of our new partnership with KidsDressSmart (KDS), an online social enterprise selling high-quality second-hand children’s clothes to raise money for worthy causes.

Do you have new, nearly new or gently-used children’s clothes you no longer need? KDS is collecting and selling children’s clothes on PathFinders behalf to raise much-needed funds.

Either drop them off at PathFinders collection points, or schedule a pickup with KDS and select PathFinders as the beneficiary charity. Clothes should be for 0 to 10 years old, and designer or desirable brands. We hope you will share the KDS vision as we do!

KDS also allows you to sell your unwanted children’s clothes yourself and benefit local charities. KDS has committed to donate 10% of each sale to charity, and you can opt to increase this to 60% for a charity of your choice. Just make sure you select PathFinders!

PathFinders in TIME Magazine

TIME Magazine published an in-depth story about the people PathFinders helps every day – ethnic minority, migrant women and their Hong Kong-born children who barely survive in a legal, health care, welfare and immigration void here in Hong Kong.

The piece is called: Living Without an Identity: The ‘Heartbreaking’ Plight of Undocumented Children in Hong Kong. It captures well the situation facing the women and children we serve.
PathFinders is both thrilled and humbled to receive such global coverage from an eminent publication. Thank you TIME for amplifying the children’s voices.
