Video on Hong Kong Female Sex Workers: The story of four sex workers overcoming adversity
Thanks to the support from Jockey Club Community Sustainability Fund, Action for REACH OUT (AFRO) launched the Walking Together Through Adversity Project in 2020. The Project aims to provide mental health assistance to Hong Kong female sex workers and targets to aid in alleviating their psychological distress under COVID-19 situations.
AFRO produced a video related to resilience through adversity, that included 4 real-life cases of female sex workers sharing personal experience in counteracting their mental distress. Besides, a psychiatrist had been invited to illustrate the source of mental stress in female sex workers and discuss other common mental health issues, as well as provide professional advice in getting through adversity. Through the video, AFRO looks forward to raising the awareness of mental health in sex workers and finding suitable ways in dealing with stress and disturbances. At the same time, AFRO hopes to promote the understanding of mental health issues in sex workers to the general public, so as to foster a loving and caring society.
