Refugee Union was founded in 2014 with the vision to safeguard the rights and protection of the asylum seekers and refugees stranded in Hong Kong. Since day one, we have been working closely with our partners in the community and organising diversified programmes to improve the well-being of our members.
Many Hands Make Light Work
To start with, this month we are thrilled to announce that the Facebook page of our centre has reached 10,000 followers, meaning that more and more people would like to learn more about the challenges of seeking asylum in Hong Kong. Thank you all, your support means a lot to us.
This month we are also delighted to have Ms Sophia Zhang from ESF Sha Tin College organising jewellery and craft workshops for our members. These activities belong to the project ‘Refugee Connect’ initiated by Ms Zhang and in partnership with our centre, which aims to empower asylum seekers and refugees stranded in Hong Kong. Please click here for more details about the project. We thank Ms Zhang for her great support of the local refugee community throughout the years.
New Year, New Hope, New Opportunities
It is December this month, in this festive season, we wish everyone of you a Merry Christmas. Projecting the coming year, we see new hope and opportunities at our centre.
First, may we send our warm welcome to photographer Ms Karling Hamill (@littlekarstar) for visiting our centre. Ms Hamill will be taking photos of our members for an upcoming programme at our centre. Stay tuned for more information.
Second, we are also looking forward to collaborating with the wonderful volunteers at Hands On Hong Kong in the coming programmes at our centre.
Donations Keep Going
Last but not least, we would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to all our Donors for lending us a helping hand. This month we received donations of wide-ranging items, which include but not limited to necessities, personal protective equipment and digital devices. As usually, we promise to deliver all donations we received to our members who are in need. Thank you very much for all your generous support!
Please stay tuned to our official website and social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for the updates, and feel free to contact us by visiting our office or sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any enquiry. Happy New Year!
