In response to the increasing number of cases of maltreatment and other exploitative and unfair labor practices affecting migrant workers in Hong Kong, S.A.R., Mission for Migrant Workers (MFMW) was established in 1981. Global Ministries supports MFMW so they can provide welfare assistance, temporary shelter and advocacy work for migrants. They receive more than one thousand cases a year and serve up to 4,000 individuals with access to educational programs and mobile counseling services.
Mission for Migrant Workers also serves as a placement site for Global Mission Fellows, young adults ages 20–30 who work in social justice ministries for two years. They serve outside of their home communities, either in the United States or overseas. To learn more, visit umcmission.org/gmf.
