HELP attends student assembly at Fanling Rhenish Church Secondary School

On Tuesday 6 March 2018, we were invited to Fanling Rhenish Church Secondary School to participate in the human library assembly, based on the book entitled "Migrant Domestic Helpers: Strangers at Home". The aim of the assembly was to help students understand more about the situations and struggles of domestic workers in Hong Kong.

Case Manager Raquel Amador and Student Education Coordinator Michelle Augustine were delighted to attend. Raquel gave a presentation on HELP and explained what we do, which was then followed by a lively discussion. The students were very engaged and asked some excellent questions. This was a great opportunity for them to talk face to face with members of HELP and gain an insight in to the important work we do.

Thank you to Kwok Wai Ching, Teacher Librarian, for inviting us.
