Through this Facebook page, we constantly organize small community events which bring local Hong Kong students and overseas immigrant workers together.

By spending time with them, we found that a lot of them were facing difficulties in seeking new job opportunities.

We then went on to create MamaHelpers in order to help students and immigrant workers find job opportunities with ease.
