WHO IS THIS FOR?
LAKSHIMI & RAKESH

The Family fled from Sri Lanka to Hong Kong to seek asylum two years ago, as they were at risk of political persecution back home. As a non-refoulement claimant, Lakshmi is not able to earn income by herself and the government welfare provision is not sufficient.
Her son, Rakesh, suffers from epilepsy and a complex psychiatric condition and is currently hospitalized. His food subsidy was cut, and while he is provided with basic meals from hospital, however still lacks nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables to maintain his upkeep.
For Speech Therapy
Naadi’s family fled from Bangladesh to Hong Kong in 2013 as they suffered
from political persecution.
He was very soon hospitalized upon his arrival to HK and was diagnosed with organ damage and a serious blood disorder condition. One of the complications is neurologic dysfunction, which can manifest as speech changes such as slurred speech. He also suffers from loss of hearing.
Naadi previously received speech therapy sessions but it was halted due to the cessation of funding.
