Hello! Our Refugee Union Hong Kong office is now opened again to public after renovation this summer, may we send a warm greeting to you all. Since always we work closely with our committed volunteers and spare no pain to safeguard asylum seekers and refugees’ fundamental rights, improving their condition and to optimise their future prospect.

REGULAR EVENTS

On a weekly basis, our office still offers a series of classes targeting asylum seekers and refugees with different age groups. These ongoing activities do not only provide opportunities for our members to learn, but also to socialise and to let them get out of the oppressive routine of feeling like prisoners-in-the-city without the opportunity to work and to contribute.

Every Saturday, we have the Canadian Tutorial Session in our office, with a group of passionate volunteers from Canadian School teaching our children school assignments and assisting them to do revision.

We also have volunteers from Justice Leader Council offering education campaign for our youngsters, teaching us language and other general knowledge. Thank you for their contribution!

Again, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all donors and volunteers who stand with us. Keep visiting our website and Facebook for the latest information.
