This month Hong Kong experienced its hottest day of the year. Many refugee families who live in small and hot subdivided flats thus came to our centre to enjoy the air conditioning service. This piece reviews the activities that happened at our centre throughout the month.
ABOUT US 關於我們

Being an union of and for refugees, we work with visions to safeguard refugee rights and improve the situation of refugees in Hong Kong.
ACTIVITIES AT A GLANCE 活動一覽
Although many of our activities are still suspended in view of the fluctuating epidemic condition, our centre continues to serve refugees in the city. A series of fundraising and community engagement work are ongoing.
This month we were honoured to host Simon Mak and Nerris Lam at our centre. They will be helping us on community engagement and fundraising affairs. We greatly appreciated the support from Simon and Nerris.
本會有幸於本月下旬與Simon Mak和Nerris Lam會面。他們將協助本會推展有關籌募和社區參與的工作。本會衷心感謝Simon和Nerris的熱心幫忙。
High food prices keep creating a heavy burden on refugee families as they do not have enough money to get groceries. Hence, we launched another fundraising campaign to help refugees buy food and necessities. We sincerely ask for your support to the local refugee community.
GIVING IS A BLESSING 施比受更有福
While fundraising is ongoing, this month we received donations of wide-ranging items. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all donors who lend us a hand. Your support means a lot to us. We promise to deliver all items we received to refugees who are in need.
Please continue to support our centre and stay tuned to our website and social media pages (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) for the updated information. You are also welcome to contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting our centre during office hours (Mondays to Saturdays, 10am–6pm).
