Care for the foreigners ── A Calling from the 150,000 Indonesian Domestic Helpers throughout Hong Kong

Since 2008, AOHK has noticed the emerging trend of domestic helpers from Indonesia coming to Hong Kong. Hence, we started to devote efforts in caring for the holistic needs of these foreigners, especially for Indonesian domestic helpers because they are moving from a country with a strong Muslim background to Hong Kong, a place with religious freedom. It is a divine opportunity for local cross-cultural mission.  We advocate and equipe local churches to grasp this opportunity through publications, promotional campaigns, seminars and courses etc.

In cooperation with three other organizations, AOHK, formed “TKI Care” in 2011 and has named the fourth Sunday of May every year as “Domestic Helper Day”. This day was created to acknowledge the domestic helpers’ contributions to the Hong Kong society. We also organize an annual “TKI Care Prayer Meeting” to pray for this huge mission field.

Different Levels of Church’s Participation

Throughout the years, more and more churches recognize the opportunity to care for the Indonesian domestic helpers in Hong Kong. However, some may not know how or when to start.  A Chinese saying goes, “If you have more resources, do more; if you have less, do less”, meaning that everyone just needs to have a willing heart to do his or her best in any situation.
