World Food Day 2016: Campaign Against Hunger
TODAY, ON WORLD FOOD DAY 2016

CAMPAIGN AGAINST HUNGER 

CAN YOU LIVE ON HK$40 A DAY?
In 2011, a working adult in HK needed HK$66.6 a day to eat nutritionally balanced meals.* 

Refugees in Hong Kong do not have the right to work.

Food costs have risen substantially in the last 5 years; it costs more now to receive the same level of nutrition.

The HK Government provides HK$1,200 in supermarket vouchers per month -- that's just HK$13 per meal, or HK$40 a day.

It can take up to 6 months for some to receive this support. That's 6 months without shelter, food, and water.
Join our Campaign Against Hunger this fall and keep HK's only soup kitchen for refugees open for another year.

 “When I arrived in Hong Kong and had no food or shelter, Christian Action’s kitchen door was the only door open to me. Suddenly, my life was not that bad.”
– Ali, a Somali refugee in HK

Centre for Refugees is today the only community centre for refugees in Hong Kong where we provide the most vulnerable—including victims of torture, war, genocide and other acts of persecution from Africa, the Middle-East, and parts of South Asia facing conflict—with a comprehensive support system that increases their social financial, cultural, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. Our focus in on filling a vital gap in humanitarian welfare by providing emergency shelter, food, education, counselling, and community support, while our long-term vision is to see refugees become empowered, engaged, valued, and respected as members of society.
