Welcome to the Refugee Union’s monthly roundup! We’re excited to share our latest updates and developments as we continue advocating for the rights and well-being of refugees in Hong Kong. This edition highlights key events from the past month. We hope this roundup offers an overview of our work and inspires you to join our mission to create a more just and equitable society for all.

About Us

The Refugee Union is a community-based organization, established in 2014 by refugees in Hong Kong. Our mission is to promote and protect the rights of refugees through advocacy, education, and community building. We work to empower refugees to become self-sufficient and active participants in the community, while also advocating for policy changes that support their rights and well-being. Our organization is run by refugees and for refugees.

Activities at a Glance

On April 1, we were thrilled to have Melinda and friends from the German Swiss International School Hong Kong organize an Easter egg decoration workshop for refugee kids.

On April 12, we were delighted to have volunteers from the Chinese International School arrange sports and outdoor activities for refugee kids at Victoria Park.

On April 28, we were grateful to Simon and Andrew of Ascent Partners, who invited our Chairwoman Namagembe Adella to introduce the Refugee Union after a financial presentation. We appreciate every opportunity to advocate for refugees in Hong Kong and raise awareness.
