June Roundup

Post Date: Jul 10th, 2019 | Categories: Advocacy | COMMENT

Refugee Union Hong Kong was founded in 2014 with the visions to safeguard asylum seekers and refugees’ fundamental rights, to improve their current condition and to optimise their future prospects. Since our establishment, we have been working closely with our committed volunteers and organising different activities to actualise members’ well-being.

DONATIONS

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to students of Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong for their visitation at our office on 14 June, and donated us with daily necessities, including towels, tissues, milk powder, clothes, and educational items for our families who are asylum seekers and refugees. Thank you very much!

Summer Visit

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Quarry Bay School for donating educational materials to facilitate our children’s learning. Thank you very much!

NEW EVENTS

On 7 June, we are glad to have Professor Lo and students from the University of Hong Kong visiting our office, and exchanging ideas on students’ summer placements and service participation.

HKU Visit

On 20 June, we had a gathering with our donors, sponsors, volunteers, members and friends to celebrate the World’s Refugee Day. Thank you for everyone’s continuous support to our asylum seekers and refugees in Hong Kong!

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 revisions.

We also have professors from local universities holding Cantonese Class for our adults, enhancing their language proficiency and hence capability to integrate into the local community. Thank you for everyone’s great contribution!
