Supporting Joy Luk 支援陸耀輝律師

經過月餘在醫院的治療,Joy Luk 陸耀輝律師已於6月16日出院。由於預期未來1年的康復過程所費不斐,陸律師已在其個人Facebook專頁發出捐助呼籲,且已有不同的團体和個人與她聯络及展開了籌款。本會作為首個協助及接待陸律師抵加尋求政治庇護的團體,將作如下配合。

With the dedication of medical staff, Joy Luk was discharged from the hospital on June 16. As the recovery process in the coming year is expected to be a heavy spending, Joy has made her plead for donations on social media. Various groups and individuals have responded with their own fundraising campaigns. TADC is the organization providing initial effort to assist Joy seeking political asylum and settling in Canada. We continue to assist her as described below.
