Facts

86% of the world’s 25.4 million refugees are hosted in developing countries. Hong Kong has one of the smallest global refugee populations; there are around 14,000 people seeking protection here from countries like Sri Lanka, Burundi and Somalia. That is less than 0.2 per cent of people in Hong Kong.  Many Hong Kongers were once refugees themselves. Between 700,000 and 1 million refugees came to Hong Kong in the 1950s, eventually comprising one-third of the city’s population.
