Personal Challenge

Please support our team as we eat for USD5.15 a day for 3 days to raise money and awareness for refugees in Hong Kong!

My Story

How much did you spend on coffee this morning? Well, a team of Linklaters staff is going to be surviving on HK40 (a little over USD5) a DAY for food and drinks for three days from 14 - 16 October. Why are they doing this?! Refugees in HK are not allowed to work so they have no way to survive whilst they await the determination of their claims other than to rely on food supplied by the government. They get a bag of food said to be worth HK40/day - however, as they are provided the actual food through food distribution centres, and not food coupons, the actual market value is even less than that. The Hungry for Change campaign is about raising awareness of the living conditions for refugees in HK, and pushing for change in the way food is provided to them. Allowing refugees to eat with dignity. So, we'll be surviving on HK40 a day, and experiencing just a little of what it is like to live like a refugee in Hong Kong. We will be raising money for Justice Centre Hong Kong, an NGO which works to support the rights of refugees and torture survivors. Please dig deep and donate, every little counts! Thank you!
