World Refugee Day – Stand with Refugees comedy night

Fill your belly with laughter and support the only soup kitchen for refugees in Hong Kong.  Suggested conrtibution of HK$400 per person will give you an evening of laughter, 2 complimentary drinks and provide 15 refugees a meal at Centre for Refugees.

Refugees receive HK$40 a day for food by the HK Government – that’s just HK$13 per meal! The assistance is limited to ingredients only. No support is provided to purchase stoves, cooking and dining utensils. The support comes in the form of supermarket vouchers. Ingredients are expensive in supermarkets and may not be culturally or nutritionally appropriate to their needs. This is why the soup kitchen is one of the most imporant services we provide especially for the new arrivals who typically wait months to receive Government assistance.

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. The Centre serves 3 meals a day (Mon - Friday) and 1 meal on Saturday. Every Friday the Centre cooks Biryani for dinner which is the most popular meal of the week.
