Single parents in PRC to rejoin their left-alone children in Hong Kong

This group of parents had me speak to them about one month ago.  A parent without their children numbering about 70 were protesting outside the Family Court building in Hong Kong. They shared with me that as the case has been ongoing for over a decade the press had dropped any coverage.  Glad to see Apple take it back up for public knowledge.  The reality is that a basic human right is that children are to be cared by a parent in attendance – not cared by aunties, grandparents or domestic helpers.  A great disservice and injustice before God to the children if both parents are removed from the care of the child.  Pain, hurt and many consequences lasting a lifetime to a child who experiences this brought on by a court ruling disallowing the child from being raised by both parents.
This practice taken by the court in Hong Kong is a stench before God’s nostrils.
Society for Community Organisation demanded speedier process in the application of the single parents in PRC to reside and rejoin their left-alone children in Hong Kong.
