Help us ensure Hong Kong’s refugee families have a home at Christmas by donating just $250 to our welfare accommodation services. In 2014, the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) raised concerns over Hong Kong’s lack of comprehensive legislation in ensuring asylum seekers and refugees’ access to legal employment, vocational training and adequate housing. At Justice Centre, we provide psychosocial support and assistance to refugees and asylum seekers in Hong Kong, helping them access the services they are entitled to and desperately need, including education, healthcare and housing.
Just $500 can pay for professional legal support to help us secure safety for others and keep families together. In 2013, the UN Human Rights Committee expressed concerns over Hong Kong’s deportation processes as it deemed the safeguards in the Refugee Convention not made available to asylum seekers and refugees in Hong Kong. At Justice Centre, we provide legal and psychosocial support to forcibly displaced individuals and families who survived violence and torture in their home countries.
On International Migrants Day, we celebrate the resilience of Hong Kong’s migrant community. Hong Kong is home to over 580,000 migrants, including migrant domestic workers, and over 13,000 refugees and asylum seekers. Protecting the rights and welfare of migrants is at the heart of Justice Centre’s work. We have been providing legal and psychosocial assistance to people seeking protection in Hong Kong, raising awareness of injustices, as well as education the next generation of human rights practitioners, to create a just and fair society for all.
Justice Centre Hong Kong shares the Refugee Concern Network’s strong concerns over some of the proposed amendments to the Immigration Ordinance. Under the proposed law, protection claimants could be deprived of their right to interpretation, compelled to give consent for medical examinations, and detained for long periods, among other things.
Justice Centre Hong Kong will appear in RTHK TV 31's Hong Kong Connection episode this evening at 8pm to explore how Hong Kong's current immigration detention regime lacks transparency and accountability. You are more than welcome to join us watching the episode: https://www.rthk.hk/tv?lang=en!
