Refugees volunteer to help restore HK after Typhoon Mangkhut

Updated: Sep 21, 2018


After Typhoon Mangkhut battered Hong Kong last weekend, the locals have started rebuilding the city.


Not only civil servants are doing their job, many locals have volunteered to help.

Residents in Tseung Kwan O volunteered to clear the debris and scattered bricks in the promenade.

Among the restoration work, there were some unexpected volunteers.

Refugee community stood by the locals and showed everyone that they too ARE PART of the Hong Kong community as they helped the Tsim Sha Tsui Police clean-up on Monday 17th September, the day after Mangkhut left Hong Kong.


Moreover, on the 18th September, the refugee community, alongside students and other members of the local community, continued to help in different districts: over 80 bags of rubbish were collected, tree branches cleared, roads and drains cleaned and unblocked.


HONGKONGUIDE is very grateful to see these kind-hearted members who love the city so much. We are proud of having you all in Hong Kong.
