On 25 April 2014, our Advocacy Officer, Victoria, made an oral submission at the LegCo Subcommittee on Poverty meeting on measures to support ethnic minorities in relation to employment and integration into the community.  Refugees and other people seeking protection are some of the most marginalized of ethnic minority communities in this city, and are living below the poverty line on the government’s welfare assistance package. Representing just a fraction of the total population, they live a life in limbo in Hong Kong, and we believe that at the very least, those who have received refugee status and are awaiting resettlement in a third country should be granted the right to work.
