Celebrating World Refugee Day - TOMORROW!

Dear Friends,

In a world full of violence which forces many people to flee, we ask that you stand with refugees, even just for a day.

Stand with us in solidarity as we observe World Refugee Day tomorrow and commemorate the courage and resilience of refugees in our city and around the world. Join us in a series of events from tomorrow until the end of June as we hear their stories, show our solidarity and intensify our support to them. It's not too late to register: check out the links below for more information!

As always, we are beyond thankful for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events!

WORLD REFUGEE DAY EVENTS

WEDNESDAY - 20 JUNE 2018
(TOMORROW)
On World Refugee Day, refugees are speaking. Will Hong Kong listen?

Join us tomorrow along with Community Business and our expert panelists as we tackle the big question around diversity and inclusion in the workplace, as well as refugee employment in Hong Kong: how can YOU make a difference in alleviating this plight? This event will offer a rare insight into the process recognised refugees face to seek work permits, as well as highlight some key barriers broken and positive stories.
