January Round-up at Refugee Union

Jan 12th, 2018 | RU Report, RU updates, programs, events | Comment

Refugee Union (RU) has already started getting busy in 2018. On 8 January, Refugee Union held its monthly meeting for members and visitors, and last weekend, RU resumed classes for children and adults.

We are grateful for all the donations of warm jackets, blankets, and diapers that have come in so far, and could always use more! Keep the donations coming. Most importantly, cash donations are needed to support existing programs for refugees, like our cultural diversity playgroup and language  classes, as well as to fund new programs in 2018. There is still much to improve. Refugees have essential skills to share and develop, and your support will not only assist refugees, but the greater Hong Kong population as well. Human rights such as affordable housing, food, and child support remain incredibly difficult for refugees in Hong Kong to access.

Please consider making a cash donation to Refugee Union – we would be deeply grateful, and it will go a long way to supporting the refugee community here in Hong Kong. You can email us as at info@refugeeunion.org to learn more, and to donate. Thank you! 

 

 

Thank you for your support

Refugee Union Collaborates with Health In Action

Dec 10th, 2015 | Health, RU updates, programs, events | Comment

Refugee Union collaborates with Health in Action to improve the health of our members. We welcome our members to register with the office to join this Program that will set the path for a healthier living in a field where we suffer very poor care in the Public health care system.

We invite our members to participate and spread the word to enable Health in Action to achieve this far sighted goal

According to the HIA proposal, the project aims to:

  1. conduct comprehensive survey in different households to understand their housing needs
  2. understand how living conditions affect ASR’s health mentally and physically
  3. help deliver basic medical checkups (body mass index, blood pressure, blood glucose) for ASRs, and do follow ups for cases accordingly to the households that we visit
  4. compile a report to reveal the demographic profile, living conditions and service needs of ASRs
