It's World Refugee Month!

 - Stand with Refugees -

On World Refugee Day, held every year on June 20th, we commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees world wide. In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees. We ask you to do your part in Hong Kong and support the refugee community. In order to honour refugees, Centre for Refugees, the only community centre for refugees in Hong Kong, is hosting a series of events to show our support and to stand with refugees. All money raised at each of these events will go towards much needed programs to help rebuild our clients lives.

Clients share their stories 
 
"I got a WhatsApp message recently from my auntie in Rwanda. She told me they found the bones. My parents’ bones, those of my two younger brothers and of my grandparents. I was confused at first, shocked, as I never imagined to ever hear such news. It has been 25 years now, since the genocide, 25 years since they are gone. A long time- but this incident brings back all the memories." more
   In Memory
 
On Monday, CFR family received the upsetting news that our wonderful client, volunteer and friend passed away in a tragic accident over the weekend. We would like to pause and reflect on World Refugee Day and honor all of those who lost their lifes during their journey to safety.
