Support Women with Emotional Needs

YWCA Monthly Donation Campaign to raise fund for Women with Emotional Needs

 

 

YWCA donation campaign for postnatal women

Newborn babies bring joy, and stress

  • Everybody around me comments on my way of raising my child. It’s annoying!

  • Why don’t you accompany me after giving birth to my sister?

  • Why does my baby cry all day? Is he sick?

  • How come the wound doesn’t heal after so many days?

A postnatal woman = a babysitter + a health consultant + a mediator...

YWCA donation campaign for working mothers and full-time moms

The race against time for modern moms never stops

  • I don’t want to be a monster parent. I just want my kid to be well-rounded.

  • I was told that my kid has stood on his own just now. How many more moments like this will I miss?

  • How can I pick up my child from school while accompanying elderly family member for out-patient visits?

  • I devote my time to my child 24/7. Why is he still so naughty?

A mother in modern times = a breadwinner + an education consultant + a nutritionist + an event planner for the children + a household cleaner...

Getting a divorce is not just the end of a marriage

  • How should I respond if my children ask me if they have to choose between me and their father?

  • My husband doesn’t want me anymore. People say I’m not a competent wife. Am I really that bad?

  • I have been a housewife for more than 10 years. Can I get a job?

A divorced woman = a newbie in the workforce + a breadwinner + a “father”...

How can you help?

Clear the air and rebuild one’s life

For a century, YWCA strives to serve people in Hong Kong, especially women and their families. We are fully aware of the importance of getting to the root of the problem, alongside medication, when dealing with women with emotional needs.

With reference to the profound experience in serving women, our team of specialists, including psychiatrists, social workers, counsellors, clinical psychologists, etc., take care of those in need in a women-oriented approach, and support them to get rid of any unhealthy thoughts.

With a monthly donation of HK$100, you can support 4 women who need emotional support. Let’s join our hands to help postnatal women, full-time moms, working moms and divorced women to live a happy and fruitful life.
