Dear Social Welfare Department,

Thank you very much for this information. I note that you mentioned the Social Welfare Department does not hold information regarding the average daily cost per non-refoulement claimant of the alternative to detention / humanitarian assistance program. May I know which department may have this information?

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Surabhi Chopra

Dear Mr/Ms Surabhi Chopra,

Thank you for your email of 27 September 2021.  The Social Welfare
Department (“SWD”) commissions non-governmental organisation to provide
humanitarian assistance to non-refoulement claimants (NRC) who are
deprived of basic needs during their presence in Hong Kong so that they
will not become destitute.    The assistance covers accommodation-related
assistance [monthly rent allowance per adult and child is $1,500 and $750
respectively, rent deposit up to $3,000 or an amount equivalent to two
months of rent (whichever is the less), property agent fee up to $750 or
an amount equivalent to the rent for half a month (whichever is the
less)], basic utilities allowance ($300 per month), food ($1,200 per
month), transportation allowance (ranging from $200 to $420 per month),
other basic necessities (offered in-kind), and counselling services, etc. 
Eligibility for the types and level of assistance based on the NRCs’
individual circumstances.  Due to the frequently changing number of
eligible NRCs and their individual types as well as levels of assistance,
the information regarding the average daily cost per NRC of the
alternative to detention/humanitarian assistance program is not available.

Regards,
Ms Jasie LAU
for Director of Social Welfare
