MONTHLY ONLINE GIVING - PAYPALPlan A: We serve approximately 75 children at VCSL. For 250 HKD per month you can meet a young mother’s most pressing baby needs, diapers, bottles, etc., or a school age child’s schooling needs, uniform, books, supplies, etc. Plan B: For 400 HKD per month you can meet an asylum seeker’s nutritional needs. Oxfam found that it took a minimum of 1,600 HKD for an individual to purchase enough of the right foods to meet their nutritional needs. Currently, an asylum seeker receives 1,200 HKD in food vouchers from the government. 400 HKD will help them bridge that gap. Plan C: Asylum seekers receive 1,500 HKD per month for accommodations. We all know this city is terribly expensive. Even the minimal accommodations that are found, which are barely liveable, cost an average of 2,100 HKD. A monthly donation of 600 HKD will help an asylum seeker to find shelter. Plan D: For 1,250 HKD per month, you can help to support one young parent to eat, take care of their child, and find shelter in this city. Plan E: With a monthly donation of 3,000 HKD, you can sponsor a small family to survive in Hong Kong.

Your Donation is the most powerful way you can make a transformation in the lives that are forgotten.With your donation you are overcoming challenges to reach the vulnerable. As an independent not-for-profit organization, we receive no government funding and so rely entirely on fundraising and donations to run our services. There are vast numbers of refugees, asylum seekers and sex workers world-wide, but the ones right here in Hong Kong we can do something about. They need your love and support to have access to basic & emotional provision such as a room to live, food to eat, relocation assistance, and post-trauma support - so they can successfully integrate back into society. Your contribution makes a difference! We need your support to expand our programs and change more lives every month. Why should you give? Because every penny you give is giving someone else a hope in life.
