Refugees Deserve an Education in Hong Kong

This petition had 165 supporters


A refugee is a person who is forced to flee their country because of war or persecution for their race, religion, nationality, membership to particular social group or political reasons.  When they arrive to their new country, they normally don’t have a lot with them. Here in Hong Kong, there are around 4500 refugees.


The Hong Kong Government covers 60% of a regular refugee’s needs which include $1500 rental allowance, $13 per meal and $200 of transport. However, they don’t provide education for them..


Financial restrictions do not let refugee parents work in Hong Kong, which make them struggle to find an education for their children, even if they are born in Hong Kong. Most of the children also don’t hold a passport from the place they originally came from.


So please sign this petition to allow refugees in Hong Kong to have access to the education they deserve.

 

难民是指因为打扙,被逼离开自己的国家。他们来到新的国家时,身上很少东西。在香港有四千五百多个难民。


香港政府只帮这些难民百分之六十的需要, 包括1500元租金,每一餐13元,和交通费用200元。但是安排上学。


经济限制不让难民的父母在香港工作,这使他们很难让自己的孩子接受教育,即使他们是在香港出生。大多数孩子也并不持有最初他们来自的国家护照。


所以请你签这个请愿,让这些难民可以上学吧!
