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.

陸律師自港抵加尋求政治庇護,期間的一切開支由《多倫多支持中國民運會》屬下的《多倫多香港人道援助基金》支付,包括出院後購買醫療床,與及康復期間安排並且支付日間及留宿醫護助理,提供 24 小時照顧。

鑑於香港人尋求政治庇護者眾,基金資源應當有效分配,使更多人得到幫助。基金成立時章程中並未確立為個別人士籌款,再加上基金將不敷應付個別長期所需,因此有必要驅分《香港人道援助基金》及個別捐款。

陸律師抵埗消息傳出後,已有善心人士透過《多倫多香港人道援助基金》指定捐款給陸律師,除部分遵所囑用在醫療項目外,全數沒有動用。民運會已將款項撥入陸律師名下的帳目,於她本人認為適當的時侯交還她本人或所指定人士管理,讓她用於生活起居的調配。本會則會繼續在政府、社區和國際機構範圍內,輔助陸律師爭取權益與資源。

至於坊間有團體或個人為陸律師舉辦活動所籌款項,則由她另行處理,並不列入上述帳目,亦與民運會及基金無關。

陸律師正在籌組屬於她個人的後援會,暫名 ”Joy Luk Support Group” ,並準備成立社媒 Patreon 帳號。一旦正式確立,本會也會在網址及Facebook 專頁協助通知大家。

陸律師雖身有殘疾、也生於憂患的時代,但她堅毅不屈、持守理想的心志,令人配服,值得擁有共同信念的同行者支持。

本會成立33 年來,注重清晰詳細的帳目簿記,除每年六四活動後,在新聞稿通報捐款數字外,會員亦可申請核數。為了保障《多倫多香港人道援助基金》求助人及捐款人的私穩,基金收支獨立入帳,本會正在準備向捐款人簡報項目開支,詳情容後公布。

承蒙大眾的信任和支持,在本會核心成員與義工的努力下,透過基金已援助或正在援助的「手足」達雙位數字。「手足」由起程到抵達多倫多尋求政治庇護,每個求助者都有個別情況,但總體而言,每人的安頓費(包括租金和生活費)平均每月約在$1500-$2000加元。每人需要照料3-6個月不等。這還未包括流亡滯留在外的照料,及法援以外的法律協助費用。

香港2019年後風雨飄搖,民主、自由、法治和公民社會相繼淪陷,香港這個以自由著稱的國際金融中心,亦成為亞洲最多政治犯的城市,僅次於緬甸。尤其被政權針對、又默默無聞的年輕人,被捕後得不到公平的審訊,出獄後亦前路茫茫,受盡社會冷眼排斥。

本會謹此呼籲愛自由、愛香港的各界繼續慷慨支持《多倫多香港人道援助基金》。大家的集腋成裘,真能溫暖人間,改變不少年輕人的命運!捐款請用 Interac e-Transfer (加拿大銀行適用)或 PayPal (全世界適用)至 [email protected]其他捐款方式及關於基金詳情,請溜覽本會網頁


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.

Since Joy Luk’s arrival in Canada from Hong Kong to seek political asylum, TADC Hong Kong Humanitarian Fund has paid for her living expenses. This includes a hospital-grade bed together with daytime and over-night personal support workers for 24-hour care arranged and paid for after her discharge from hospital.

Knowing there are plenty of Hong Kong youths seeking political asylum, it is imperative for the Fund to allocate resources effectively to help as many as possible. The Fund has no provision to provide fundraising effort for individuals. As well, the Fund will not be sufficient to meet individuals’ long-term needs. Therefore, it is necessary to separate the “TADC Hong Kong Humanitarian Fund” from donations to individuals.

After the news on the arrival of Joy has broken out, a number of kind Samaritans have sent donations into the Fund designated to her. All such designated donations have been set aside in a separate account, with the amount specifically dedicated towards medical expenses already spent as instructed by donors. The amount in this account will be transferred to her upon her request, to be managed by her or her designated representative to cover her living expenses. TADC continues to assist Joy with all levels of government, community and international organizations within the scope of fighting for her rights and welfares.

At the same time, funds raised by groups or individuals will be handled by Joy herself outside of the above account, the Fund and TADC.

Joy is going to form a personal support group, tentatively called “Joy Luk Support Group”, and set up a Patreon account. Once her preparation is ready, TADC will help promote to everyone through our website and Facebook page.

TADC continues to assist Hong Kong youths arriving in Toronto to seek political asylum. The circumstances for each of them are different, but in general average settlement expenses (including rent and living expenses) total to about $1500-$2000 per person per month, for a duration of 3-6 months. This amount does not include expenses while in exile and costs of legal assistance not covered by legal aid.

TADC appeals to all of you, who love Hong Kong and enjoy freedom, to provide your generous support to the “TADC Hong Kong Humanitarian Fund”. Your collective actions will certainly change the fate of many young people and make the world a better place to live! Please send your donations through Interac e-Transfer (from any Canadian bank) or PayPal (from anywhere in the world) to [email protected] For other forms of donation and for details of the Fund, please visit TADC web page.
