Janan, now five years old, lives with her family in the Philippines. Her mother Angie lost her job as a Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) when she was pregnant.

For Janan and her siblings, it was very important for their mother to continue to work in Hong Kong to provide a stable income for the family.

PathFinders helped Angie with her visa extension and because she never overstayed she was eligible to return to Hong Kong for work after two years of taking care of Janan in the Philippines.

PathFinders also helped Jenny with pregnancy checkups, hospital bills, baby clothing and supplies, as well as immunisations and birth certification for Janan. For the first four months of her life, Janan stayed at PathFinders’ shelter where she spent time bonding with her mother in a safe and clean environment. Angie also joined in PathFinders education classes, such as positive parenting, to empower her to provide Janan with nurturing and responsive care.
