World Refugee Day is held every year on 20 June. On this day, we come together as one to observe this day, to remember those who have fled their home due to wars or human right abuses, to show solidarity with asylum seekers and refugees all over the world, and to celebrate their courage and life.

This year, our theme will be “Treasures In Our City”. The event will be hosted in Kowloon Union Church, live streaming is also available through youtube through this link:https://youtu.be/xnqaLQCalJc

Standing With Refugees

Category : EYGD , World Refugee Day

Yearly, in the month of June, the world celebrates World Refugee Day. Following the political and economic instability worldwide, now more than ever, refugee issues have become a global crisis and a concern of the whole humanity.

“I am deeply concerned to see more and more situations where refugees are not receiving the protection they need and to which they are entitled. We need to re-establish the integrity of the international refugee protection regime. In today’s world, no community or country providing safe refuge to people fleeing war or persecution should be alone and unsupported. We stand together, or we fail.” António Guterres (UN Secretary-General)

Even though Hong Kong is not a signatory to the refugee convention, yet it has a rich history in offering shelter to refugees since the 19th century to today…

Would you like to hear first-hand from refugees themselves? Would you like to listen to refugee advocates?
