Since 2008, PathFinders has directly served almost 7,000 of Hong Kong's most vulnerable babies, children and their migrant mothers. During 2019, we cared for 925 new beneficiaries, provided 700 healthcare interventions, helped 91 babies acquire birth certificates and passports, handled 142 legal matters, held 91 education classes and assisted 64 families to return to the mother's home country.
To address root causes and prevent crisis, we have empowered and educated over 62,000 people. In 2019 alone, we significantly increased our annual reach, empowering 37,000 people with greater awareness, understanding and education about pregnancy and maternity protections and obligations. We also shared our experience with, and made recommentations to, government departments, legislators, the general public, consulates, academics, media and the United Nations.
"PathFinders does the thankless job of caring for the children and migrant mothers who fall out of the Hong Kong system of health care, justice and welfare. For such we are thankful, humanity is thankful."
