February Roundup

Post Date: Mar 4th, 2020 | Categories: Advocacy | COMMENT

Refugee Union Hong Kong was founded in 2014 with visions to safeguard protection claimants’ rights and ameliorate their prospects. Since our commencement of service, we have been working closely with our partners in community and organising diversified of programmes to actualise members’ psychological and social well-being.

Calling for an Urgent Increase in Assistance

Seeking refuge in Hong Kong, one of the world’s costliest cities, is never an easy task, while the current coronavirus outbreak has aggravated our hardship. To express members’ concerns, we submitted a petition to Social Welfare Department on February 27, requesting the government to increase the amount of assistance, up to the standard that asylum seekers can survive with dignity.
