With Hong Kong’s fifth wave of outbreak coming to an end, everything in the city stepwise goes back to normal. This roundup reviews activities that happened at our centre in the past month.
About us 關於我們
The Refugee Union, founded in 2014, is Hong Kong’s only refugee-led organisation. Currently, our centre is based in Sheung Wan. Since our commencement of service, we have been working with visions to safeguard refugee rights and to improve the status quo of asylum seekers and refugees in Hong Kong.
Activities at a glance 活動一覽
This month activities at our centre began to resume as the local epidemic condition improved. On 25 May, volunteers of Grassroots Future organised a crochet workshop at our centre. Refugee ladies learned DIY with joys in the event.
本月二十五日，Grassroots Future 的義工團隊到訪本會並為難民婦女舉辦了一個針織工作坊。參加者於活動後皆表示獲益良多。本會衷心感謝義工團隊的努力。
On 27 May, we were honoured to host teachers and students from the Glenealy School. They visited our centre to learn more about the situation of asylum seekers and refugees in Hong Kong and sent us donations of items.
本月二十七日，己連拿小學 (Glenealy School) 的師生到訪本會，透過實地考察讓學生更深入了解本地難民社群的狀況。師生及後捐贈物資到本會，以行動支持本地難民社群。本會對此深表欣賞和謝意。
This month we were thrilled to be selected by the Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball (HKACB) as one of the beneficiaries. The annual event aims at raising funds to support Hong Kong’s charities and to facilitate the development of arbitration in Asia. The invite is a recognition of our service to the local refugee community. Thank you.
Giving is a blessing 施比受更有福
This month we received donations of wide-ranging items. We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to all generous donors for lending us a hand. Your support means a lot to us. As always, we promise to deliver all donations we received to asylum seekers and refugees who are in need.
