  • Feeds Up To 100 People In Our Kitchen Per Day

    HKD 1600      Goodwill

    COME DINE WITH US! Centre for Refugees serve around 100 warm and nutritious meals to Refugees and Asylum Seekers at a cost of around HK$1,600 per day* or around HK$45,000 per month. The Hong Kong Government support comes in the form of supermarket vouchers which is equivalent to HK$40 a day, per person and limited to ingredients only. However, ingredients can be very expensive and they often don’t have the cooking facilities or equipment at home. If you can help us support this, we will invite you to join us for a lunch or dinner one day to try for yourself the warm, nutritious meals served at Centre for Refugees.

    *At the Centre we serve 3 meals a day (Mon-Friday) and 1 meal on Saturday

  • Enables A Refugee Child To Attend And Succeed At School For 1 Year

    HKD 5000      Goodwill

    One of the most positive aspects of living in Hong Kong for refugees is that their children can continue their education up to the age of 18 years. However, as every parent knows, educating a child in this city requires a substantial financial commitment. While refugee children receive some support from the government there is no provision for all the other school-related items such as clothing (uniforms), shoes, stationery, school bags, activity fees, healthy lunches, administrative fees, and other costs associated with their learning. Your support of HK$5000 will help us fill this gap and support a child for 1 school year.

  • Provides Diapers And Wipes For 108 Babies For 1 Month

    HKD 12960      Goodwill

    Refugee babies and toddlers receive 2 reusable wash-cloth diapers as part of their assistance package from the Hong Kong government; however, the lack of facilities to wash and dry cloth nappies remains a major concern for hygiene in very cramped, unventilated, and ill-equipped rooms that many refugee parents are able to afford. Each month, we provide over 100 refugee babies and toddlers with milk and diapers to ensure their health, hygiene, and nutrition. This is an urgent need as we rely on monthly donations to sustain this support and is managed on a monthly basis.
