Bethune celebrates Christmas

14 April 2016

Christmas Eve 2015 was a happy, memorable occasion for 27 clients of Bethune House Migrant Women's Refuge.
A multinational Christmas dinner and party at the KU Space hall at Jordan Road in Kowloon lit up the faces of the women residents of Bethune House as food and drinks galore, carol singing, parlor games and exchange gifts transformed the event into one big family reunion.
Bethune's executive director Edwina Antonio and  Mission for Migrant Workers general manager Cynthia Tellez co-hosted the gathering attended by about 60 guests, which included student volunteers and supporters from various migrant organizatons.
The annual event to celebrate Christmas is meant “to give warmth, love and company to our migrant domestic workers who are miles away from their homes and families.”
The evening was enlivened by emcee Rey Asis, whose funny remarks and antics added to the merriment.
In her welcome remarks. Antonio said that “despite all the challenges of 2015, we are here for the residents of Bethune House, we are here to celebrate."

Other groups that celebrated Christmas in their own ways:

Double celebration: Members of Sikap Association trooped back to their home ground in Hong Kong Tennis Centre on Wong Nei Chung Gap Road in Wanchai on Dec.25 to celebrate a twin event: Christmas and the birthday the following day of their founder and longtime president, Rey Vital. The group's day, was, however, not complete without their usual dose of tennis.  Earlier, on Dec. 6, Sikap held a more formal Christmas party at Charter House in Wanchai, attended by about 80 people. - Jo Campos

Christmas at the Park: The Eagle Commando group, along with its affiliates Black Tiger and Black Cobra, held a joint Christmas Party at Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park in Sheung Wan on Dec. 20.
