COVID-19 Relief: Distributing Care Packages for refugees and asylum seekers

The program is made possible through a generous donation from the Macquarie Group Foundation.

Description: There are almost 13,000 asylum seekers in Hong Kong who are unable to work and earn a decent income to fulfill their basic needs. They were struggling to make ends meet even before this pandemic. Now, with many of them living in fear and having their livelihoods impacted, they are in more dire need than ever.
 
Part of the burden on Hong Kong’s refugees and asylum seekers (and the organisations acting as their lifeline), can be eased through the delivery of relief Care Packages brought directly to their doorsteps by caring volunteers. Each pack will last a household for one week.

 
Volunteer roles:  ​
  • Volunteers will receive a short briefing and protective gear (masks, gloves, and hand sanitizers) upon arriving at the community centre.
  • Volunteers will help to sort and assemble Care Package items including essential food and hygiene items and other necessities.
  • Volunteers will then support centre staff by taking vans to other areas (e.g. To Kwa Wan, Yau Tsim Mong, Hung Hom) and deliver care packages to the recipients' households. After leaving the package on the individual’s doorstep, the volunteer will knock on the door to inform them before leaving. 
  • Please be aware of the service involves heavy lifting. 
 
Volunteer safety:
 
Centre staff and volunteers will adopt HandsOn Hong Kong COVID-19 safety precautions in-line with Centre for Health Protection guidelines. If you have any questions regarding this service, please directly email to hohk@handsonhongkong.org
 
 
活動簡介:香港有近13,000名難民及尋求庇護人士,他們無法工作並不能獲得收入來滿足其基本需求。,甚至在疫情之前都在努力維持生計。 現在,由於他們許多人生活在恐懼中並影響了他們的生計,他們比以往任何時候都更加迫切需要幫忙。

提供救濟包可以減輕香港難民及尋求庇護人士(以及為其提供服務的中心)的部分負擔。 每包救濟包將支援一個家庭一週的生活。
 
 
義工角色:
  • 每位義工抵達中心之時,中心工作人員將會提供指引及相關保護物品(口罩、手套及酒精搓手液)。
  • 所有義工將幫忙將遞送物資分裝入袋,和中心職員一起分發這些物資到貨車上,並隨車將物資直接送達給在土瓜灣,油麻地及红磡地區的家庭。在機構中心直接分發這些物資給到場領取的家庭。遞送過程中, 請義工敲門告知受惠者,物資已放置門口再離去
  • 請注意此服務涉及重物搬運。
