Andrea Gutwirth

"Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but a sign or your honesty, strength and courage."

Andrea runs a 24 hour hotline for women in need in Hong Kong. Her philiospohy is 'to share my knowledge and help to create awareness, which in turns create growth and empowerment for women who want to regain their life back'.

Andrea also holds regular support groups for all nationalities, including local HK and expat women. Her organisation is known and promoted in the medical community of HK and she also speaks Cantonese.
