A New Haven We re­ported on the Haven shel­ter for do­mes­tic work­ers, which is run­ning a fund-rais­ing cam­paign to keep its doors open (“Sav­ing a Safe Haven for Hong Kong’s Do­mes­tic Work­ers,” Aug 25). Read­ers were keen to get in­volved.

My wife was a do­mes­tic helper in Hong Kong. I feel re­ally bad for what a lot of them have to deal with for a lit­tle money. Gabriel Gelder­sma
