First Indian social worker in Hong Kong determined to serve refugees

An Indian decent born and raised in Hong Kong, Jeffrey Andrews is the first Indian to become a local social worker. Although he can speak fluent Cantonese, Jeff does not know how to write Chinese as he only had the chance to learn it in primary school. After a disappointing result at the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) and failing to continue his education, Jeff was led astray and even arrested for fight and theft when he was 19. With fortune on his side, however, he was spared jail and received suspended sentence instead. Jeff later returned to school and became a qualified social worker. He currently works at Christian Action and dedicates his time serving refugees in Hong Kong.
