Ethnic minorities face a number of challenges in Hong Kong. Many of these problems stem from their lack of competency in the Chinese language. This language barrier effectively molds Hong Kong into a kind of foreign unwelcoming environment.
 
The purpose of Call Mira is to help Hong Kong's ethnic minority women to gain access to resources that are, albeit available to them, not attainable due to the language barrier. 
Hong Kong Public Facilities
!!! Leisure and Cultural Services Department !!!
 
Hong Kong's Leisure and Cultural Services Department is a public resource that features a number of state-of-the-art facilities and affordable programs for all members of the public. Check it out by clicking the link above.  
 
Many of the facilities featured in and funded by the LCSD are either free or very affordable, for example, the Victoria Swimming Pool charges 8 HKD for a single entry (for a student/child/senior citizen) while it charges 18 HKD for an adult. During the weekends, the entry fee is 1 HKD higher for all (so 9 HKD for students/children/seniors and 19 HKD for adults).
