多倫多香港人道援助基金

1989年天安門民主運動被殘酷鎮壓之後,黃雀行動救出了近四百多名大陸民運人士。香港人出錢出力,冒著生命危險和政治逼害也在所不惜。

2019年,香港人在「反送中」的民主運動中為了自己的自由奮勇力戰。年輕一代堅毅不屈的精神感動了全世界,也付出了沉重的代價!無故失踪、離奇暴斃、遭虐打、性侵等罪行被不斷揭發後,原有的調查和法治機制不但形同虛設,更是倒行逆施!今年7月1日,中共人大強行通過港版國安法後,香港的人權狀況更是到了無法無天的變本加厲!瘋狂的濫捕、濫控和欲加之罪的重判令國際社會震驚,也令大批香港青年不得不離開所愛、所為之奮鬥的香港而流亡海外。

這些在海外的年輕人,可再有當年的黃雀義舉伸出援手?!

香港孩子香港人救!香港孩子,也請愛護香港的人共同營救!

《多倫多支持中國民運會》31年前為天安門民主運動而成立。當年香港移民只有數萬,在社區的支持下我們接待和援助了近百名中國民運人士,更成功遊說加拿大政府接納五千多名中國學者和學生成為永久居民。加拿大至今有六十萬香港移民,我們又怎能讓自己的孩子離開香港後徬徨無依?

自港版國安法通過後,本會透過私人募捐,默默地參與對流亡「手足」的援助。隨著港共政府近期對香港抗爭者的瘋狂打壓和迫害後,流亡海外的香港青年人數遽增,已不是私人募捐所能承擔,極需要社區大眾的齊心協力!

成立基金

多倫多支持中國民運會於2020年12月22日宣佈成立《多倫多香港人道援助基金》,基金宗旨在於為受迫害而逃離香港的人士提供人道援助。基金首要任務是向離開家園扺達安省的人士伸出援手,讓他們安定下來適應新生活,當中大多是年青人甚至未成年人士。

目前已經有不少抗爭者逃離香港,其中一部份是希望前往加拿大尋求政治庇護。由於疫情關係,現時加拿大口岸仍然關閉,令他們滞留他國未能入境。待疫情舒緩關口重開後,向扺埗人士提供支援相信會維持一段時間。因此基金並無定下籌款目標,希望社區各界能持續地伸出援手,有錢出錢、有力出力,令基金的工作能不斷地有效進行,令更多人受惠。

TADC Hong Kong Humanitarian Fund

After the brutal suppression of Tiananmen pro-democracy movement in 1989, about 400 activists were rescued out of China under the operation code-named Yellow Bird. People in Hong Kong did not hesitate a moment to offer their help, knowingly risking their lives and political repercussion.

In 2019, millions of brave Hong Kongers came out to fight for their freedom. The perseverance and unyielding spirit of the younger generation moved the whole world. This pro-democracy movement at the same time has caused them a steep price. Cases of suspicious deaths, disappearances, physical assaults and sexual assaults came to light one after the other. The calls for proper police investigations and fair court trials all have gone in vain. On July 1, the CCP’s National People’s Congress forcibly imposed the National Security Law in Hong Kong. Since then, the human rights situation in Hong Kong has deteriorated to a new low. Indiscriminate arrests, groundless prosecutions and hash sentences have shocked many around the world. A significant number of activists have chosen to flee Hong Kong, the place they love and have defended for, and go into exile overseas.

After the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre, TADC have mobilized the community to provide support for close to 100 pro-democracy activists who fled China and successfully lobbied our Canadian government accepting more than 5000 Chinese scholars and students as permanent residents. Now, we must do the same and support the young Hong Kong activists who have gone exile.

Since the implementation of National Security Law, TADC has privately gathered donations to support some young activists. As the Hong Kong CCP government has recently tightened up their grip on the activists, more and more of them have no option but to go exile. We are therefore turning this private donation drive into a public fundraising appeal.

Announcement

On December 22, 2020, Toronto Association for Democracy in China (TADC) announced the establishment of the TADC Hong Kong Humanitarian Fund. The mission of the fund is to provide humanitarian assistance to people who fled or left Hong Kong to avoid political persecution. The initial scope of the fund will be to provide assistance to those who have arrived, or are arriving, in Ontario. These are predominantly underaged and young protesters who fled Hong Kong to escape persecution at home.

Many of the activists have escaped Hong Kong already. Some of them have intention to come to Canada but have been stranded in other countries due to the current border closure as a result of the global pandemic. Assistance to their settlement once they have arrived will be a long process. As such, the Fund has not set a fundraising target but to ask the community to contribute continuously at whatever way they can, both by monetary donation and by volunteering. The Fund will pull together all available resources to assist those in need.

You may have seen Ricker Choi’s paintings on the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement through various channels. Aside from being an accomplished pianist, he is also a talented painter. Recently he made reprints of some of his paintings for sale and raised a few thousand dollars to benefit the Hong Kong activists. He also offered his painting on the portrait of Agnes Chow as a fundraising item to a restaurant owner for C$2000. We are happy to announce that the net proceed of this sale has been donated to the Humanitarian Fund.

Ricker is donating another five of his paintings as fundraising items for an auction organized by TADC. Net proceeds will again be donated to this Humanitarian Fund. Ricker will retain 10% of final price to cover painting supplies for his further creation.

Bidding will be open to everyone in the Greater Toronto Area as well as outside the region. The store will ship the paintings to destinations world-wide upon request.

The web store https://CanHKer.ca is operated by a few dedicated volunteers. They are offering this trading platform for free to those who are fundraising for the benefit of the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement. 

The auction has collected $4180 in total. After Ricker retaining 10% to cover material costs, $3762 was donated into the Fund. TADC is grateful to see the generous support from the 5 winners, all those who had bid on the items and the CanHKer.ca web store providing the platform to carry out the auction. Needless to say, this is impossible without Ricker.

In addition to these 5 paintings and the portrait of Agnes Chow, Ricker has privately sold a few of his paintings to others. Similarly, 90% of sale price was donated to the Fund. He also sold reprints of his paintings and his piano music pieces privately, donating net proceeds after costs to the fund also. TADC express our utmost thanks to Ricker’s dedication.
