This November was a fruitful month at the Refugee Union. With the generous support of our kind-heart volunteers and committed members, our Office continue to serve the local refugee community, speaking out for an improvement of their living condition and well-being despite the harsh conditions that Hong Kong Government forces on us.


On 13 November, our Members were invited to the International College Hong Kong (Hong Lok Yuen) and gave a speech to students, sharing with them our daily life experiences and challenges we are encountering. Thank you for concerning our refugee community.


Good news! We are glad to share with our Members that, starting from this month, our Office will have Music Session for our refugee kids on every Saturday. Volunteers will come and teach children how to sing and play with musical instruments. Hooray! We look forward to seeing you in class.


On a weekly basis, our Office offers a series of classes targeting the asylum seekers and refugees with different age groups. These are ongoing activities our members are most grateful for as not classes not only provide opportunity to learn, but also socialise and get out of the oppressive routine of feeling like prisoners-in-the-city which is the condition of being on Immigration bail without the opportunity to work and feel productive.

We have the Canadian Tutorial Session every Saturday at our office, with a group of passionate volunteers to teach refugee children school assignments and help them to prepare for tests and examinations.

The Cultural Diversity Playgroup at our office targets both refugee adults and babies. Participants can make new friends and learn new things during lessons. They all share joyful moments.
