Nepali, general of China, Hong Kong

Introduction / History
The Nepalese who came to live in Hong Kong were Gurkhas who were part of the British military. They began service in the British military in the nineteenth century. When China became rulers of Hong Kong in 1997 they allowed them to stay.

The Nepalese started coming to Hong Kong in the 1970s. They are growing in numbers and have their own NGOs that help the Nepalese in Hong Kong. Though they have Hong Kong identity, they are classed as Nepalese nationals.

Many of the Nepalese are building workers and security guards. A lot of them live in the Yau Tsim Mong and Yuen Long regions. They live mostly in housing for large families as they like to be together and if they lived in government housing this would not be so.

The Nepalese have different ethnic languages as well as speaking in Nepali. Nepalese students can apply for welfare help with their education though there is no guarantee that their education will get them work afterwards. The Nepalese workers do tend to be less well paid in general compared to the Hong Kong workers. There are also language differences that cause problems. Many Nepalese cannot speak Cantonese well.

The Nepalese have their own newspapers in Nepalese such as Everest Weekly. Hinduism is their main religion.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Nepalese in Hong Kong would come to Jesus Christ with whom there is equality.
* Pray that Christian articles could appear in their newspapers.
