Exclusive | Where is my home? Interview with refugees in HK

"So many people have been trapped here for 20 years," said Ciara, a 15-year-old Nigerian refugee who has been in Hong Kong for seven years. During an interview with DotDotNews, Ciara and her mother, who are trapped in Hong Kong, told us how helpless they felt about their lives.

Because the Hong Kong SAR government has not yet signed the 1951 UN Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, refugees often wait months or even years before officials decide whether their refugee claims are valid.

DotDotNews explored Centre for Refugees in Chungking Mansions, Tsim Sha Tsui, to look into the lives of the refugees, hoping that these people who are likely to be overlooked will be brought back into the public attention.

「有些我認識的人已經困在這裏二十多年了。」來香港7年的15歲尼日利亞難民Ciara說道。在日前的獨家採訪中,這對困在香港的難民母女告訴DotDotNews點新聞記者她們目前困難的處境。

由於香港特區政府尚未簽署1951年聯合國《難民地位公約》,所以這些難民往往要等上數月甚至數年時間,政府才會決定其難民申請是否有效。

此次DotDotNews點新聞記者實地探訪難民中心,地點是位於尖沙咀的香港多元文化中心重慶大廈,希望藉此能夠讓這些容易被忽略的人群重新回到大眾視野。
