Refugee Girls Face Multiple Risks

World Refugee Day is observed on June 20 every year to raise awareness of the difficulties facing refugees worldwide and  to drive collaborative forces to help them overcome these challenges. However, tragedies are still happening in the Mediterranean and numerous refugees lost their lives venturing in the sea. The heart breaking picture of a drowned migrant baby in the arms of a rescuer has once again brought the world’s attention to the plight of refugees.

Ending child labour requires collaboration and patient work (South China Morning Post)

June 12 is the World Day Against Child Labour, an occasion to focus on the heart-rending situations facing millions of working children worldwide. Globally, 400 million children are living on less than HK$10 a day, and 168 million give up school to earn a living.

Child Labour: Life is Miserable

Around 168 million underprivileged children worldwide are still being forced to drop out of school and work in order to earn a living. Being heavily exploited by their employers, these children are not entitled to basic labour protection such as insurance, holiday or even liveable salary. What makes matters worse is that 85 million of them are engaged in hazardous work, such as mining and building, which can severely jeopardize the physical, mental and moral well-being of a child.
