The REFUGEE UNION is the first refugee-led society registered in Hong Kong since 2014.

Our vision is to be the union of refugees in Hong Kong with the aim of safeguarding refugee rights and improving the protection, wellbeing and future prospects of our community. There are currently 10,000 people seeking asylum here.

Our mission is to empower our members to assist each other and actively participate in all matters relating to our life in exile and the development of the asylum sphere in Hong Kong according to the highest standards of human rights. 

Why do we need your support?

We established an ADVICE PROGRAM to guide fellow refugees, newcomers and veterans, who inevitably encounter difficulties due to stringent policies and misinformation that circulate within our community and in Hong Kong society. We are often unable to overcome it individually, but can find strength in sound, objective advice from those of us who have been through it all. Such problems may relate to protection, healthcare, wellbeing, parenting, education and more. 

We seek your generous support to continue and develop our services which are highly appreciated in the community and boil down to promoting objective decision making. 

Our objective is to raise funds to advise 10 refugees daily at a cost of USD 65; five days a week it is USD 1,300 a month. Money is needed to organize our members, pay transport fares and offer a communal lunch in our sponsored office - where you are most welcome!

Such an Advice Program would be otherwise unavailable in Hong Kong. And we will share our good and bad stories for our benefit and your information. 

That's it for now.

Thank you for supporting us!

Goals
$0 of $1,300 per month
Our first target is USD 1300 a month. It will enable us to advise 10 refugees a day from Monday to Friday. Our refugee members are not paid, but they need bus money to get to the office, which is sponsored. At the same time, funds are required also for refugee members in need of advice to reach our office. Lunch will be provided.
