Refugee men, women and children flee from some of the world worst human rights abuses and experience things that you and I could never imagine. They often arrive in Hong Kong with nothing but the clothes on their back, and unable to work, they have no money of their own to help them survive.So how do they eat?
The Hong Kong Government gives them pre-packaged bags of food, which they pick up every ten days from a shop often far from where they live. The food is said to be worth HK$40 per day, supposed to cover three meals per day and last for ten days. But, when we price-compare the food they receive with food for sale in supermarkets, we see that the food they get is worth much less. Often it runs out before the ten days is up; sometimes it is expired; always it is limited in quality and quantity.
With Hungry for Change, we want to change this and we want you to help us do it.
