Let's support Hong Kong's fight!
As global support wanes out, there is a greater need to support the fight against Beijing's creeping authoritarianism. We appreciate any amount donated. Every dollar counts. Thank you.
The Hong Kong Humanitarian Fund - Vancouver (the Fund) was set up to provide assistance to help Hong Kong Pro-Democracy protesters who arrive in Canada to obtain refugee status.
Financial support and settlement supports include:
» legal fees for refugee claim if applicable
» referral to legal aid if possible
» temporary housing and help with finding permanent housing
» help with registering for mandatory federal and provincial programs and medical insurance
» support with job seeking
» providing living expenses for those who are actively seeking but not yet able to obtain a job
» orientation to the community
» referrals to other refugee programs
The Hong Kong Humanitarian Fund - Vancouver accepts referral-based intake.
The Fund has connections from Hong Kong that gives referrals and helps with fact-check.
» Once a referral is made, volunteers of the Fund will need to initialize a factcheck process, which includes whether they have been charged, if they qualify to claim refugee status etc.
» Documents and information like police charge paper, news report, etc are required and need to be provided for a case file to be opened. (In the case of emergency, a prove of threat to safety and two sources of verification will be sufficient for case files to be opened.)
The above services are all dependent on availability of funds and the allocation priority of the cases. The Board of Directors of VSSDM and Hong Kong Humanitarian Fund - Vancouver have the right to all final decisions.
