With sports as the springboard and education as the foundation, we work towards a resilient and empowered refugee community in Hong Kong and beyond. Your support will go towards funding RUN's programmes: HK$500 per month covers essential support for one vulnerable female refugee in order for them to meet their basic needs. This includes costs for food, housing and medical support. HK$3,800 provides transport costs for one refugee woman to attend the weekly Hiking to Heal Programme for one year. HK$4,800 provides one single mother with babysitting so she can attend sport programmes for one year. HK$14,000 covers one year (48 weeks) of sports programmes for a vulnerable refugee mother including transport, childcare and meals. Visit www.runhk.org and https://wifasia.org for more information.
