January Roundup

Post Date: Feb 19th, 2020 | Categories: Advocacy | COMMENT

Happy New Year! We wish everyone the best of health in the year of the mouse. Refugee Union Hong Kong was founded in 2014 with visions to safeguard the rights of protection claimants and to ameliorate their living standards and prospects. Since our commencement of service, we have been working closely with different stakeholders in the community and have organised diversified programmes to actualise our members’ social and psychological well-being.


We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the following Donors: Madam Teresa for donating us toys, clothing; HSBC Team for donating us chairs in good quality; and other anonymous Donors for donating us useful home items. Thank you very much for your kind heart!


On 20 January, we were invited to a Community Fair organised by the Discovery College. It was a nice chance to raise public awareness about refugee issues. Thank you very much for the invitation!


For regular events, every Tuesday we welcome all members to join our Yoga class, a healthy sport to mitigate our stress and refresh our mind. On Saturday we have Dr. Terrence Shum from the Open University of Hong Kong teaches us Cantonese, through strengthening language proficiency to help us better fit-in to community. On the same day, we also have a tutorial session led by a group of committed students from the Canadian International School, teaching children homework and assisting them in doing revision.

Despite current epidemic situations, we, as usual, serve with our initial heart, sparing no pain to pursuing a better society with justice and fairness to everyone, regardless of who they are and where they belong to. Stay tuned to our official website and Facebook page for more information and updates, and feel free to contact us by visiting our office or sending us email at info@refugeeunion.org should you have any enquiry.
