Message from HELP for Domestic Workers

Liza Avelino, a Filipino domestic worker in Hong Kong is climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in aid of HELP for Domestic Workers (HELP) in August this year. She hopes to raise HK$150,000. 
Liza, who is known for her sense of adventure, whilst holding down a full-time job looking after a family, is the first Filipino domestic worker to scale Mt Kilimanjaro, following her previous climbs in the Himalayas, Malaysia and Japan.
When asked why she is doing this, Liza says “she wants to put the spotlight on the positive contribution made to the world by domestic workers. To show the world that they can do more than scrubbing loos, and demonstrate to other woman how to be confident and assertive, all while being a part of the community”. Liza’s goal is to bridge the gap between the local community and domestic workers and hopes to encourage others, including employers, to see domestic workers as people.
