HONG KONG (SE): Foreign domestic workers who are assigned to the care of the elderly in Hong Kong are deprived of proper resting hours and many of them do not have adequate training, reveals a recent study conducted by the Mission For Migrant Workers (MFMW). 
 
The study showed that foreign domestic workers, although assigned with the tough task of caring for the elderly, are a neglected group whose needs are to be attended to. Some respondents even complained that they were put to work non-stop for one whole day.
