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.

PathFinders: urging pregnant migrant workers to seek help

The Immigration Department has released information about 3 siblings aged between 17 to 19 who have been living in Hong Kong undocumented and without ever attending school or accessing a public hospital. These are the most delayed birth registrations ever in Hong Kong. The mother is a former foreign domestic worker, the father is a Hong Kong resident.

PathFinders urges migrant domestic workers who are pregnant or who have given birth to children who have not been registered to please seek help, no matter how difficult or embarrassing it may be, and no matter how old your children are. PathFinders’ case workers will do their best to help you. Please call PathFinders’ hotline: 5190 4886 to speak to a case manager who will, in a non-judgmental manner, help guide and counsel you. You are not alone. PathFinders has assisted hundreds of women, babies and children in this situation.
