19 August   EVENT
Refugee Walk for Charity

10am - 12noon | Hong Kong

What is the life of a refugee like in HK? To mark World Humanitarian Day on 19 August, Community Business is co-organising a Refugee Walk for Charity with Christian Action to raise awareness of the plight of refugees and asylum seekers in HK. There has been a concerning increase in people seeking asylum around the world, including in Hong Kong where it is estimated that there are around 11,000 asylum seekers. This meaningful walk will start at CAs refugee centre and will trace the steps of refugees in their day-to-day existence in HK, ending with a visit to an actual refugee family which is awaiting resettlement.

Community Builders Meeting 4: The Impact of Human Trafficking on Business
7 - 8:30pm | Central, Hong Kong

(Our heartfelt thanks to Allen & Overy for hosting)

Every five seconds, another person enters slavery somewhere in the world. It is estimated that there are over 45 million people in slavery today more than any other time in history.  Over the past three years, this issue has become a dominant topic within the private sector. To make sense of this emerging business risk, we have invited Matt Friedman of the Mekong Club to provide a comprehensive update on human slavery and its implications to business. The talk will explore the changing human trafficking paradigm; the relationship between human trafficking and slavery; global trends and patterns; the impact on the private sector; the changing obligations within a range of business circles, and what can be done to address them.
