100 Women 2015: Filipina mum pays price of Hong Kong job

Nearly half of the 340,000 foreign domestic helpers in the former British colony, Hong Kong, are from the Philippines and Indonesia.

Many local working parents say they could not hold down their jobs without the help.

But the price one Filipina mother is paying to work as a live-in nanny in the city is extremely high.

She talks to the BBC's Grace Tsoi about the sacrifices she has had to make.
