Even in a city like Hong Kong, it can be easy for vulnerable women to fall into exploitative sex work. It can, equally, be very, very difficult to get out. NGO Eden exists to walk alongside women who want to exit the sex industry but lack the information, skills or job opportunities to do so. When they were planning their new community centre in Yau Ma Tei, Eden contacted Crossroads for help. They had the space, but needed furniture to fill it. We were only too happy to help with some of the furnishings and accessories on their wish list to support their goal of making their new centre a beautiful place for counselling, comfort, referral to services, job training and non-judgemental friendship (pictured below).
