Hundreds of churches to welcome Hong Kongers fleeing China’s surveillance

A U.K.-wide Church initiative has been launched to welcome Hong Kong residents migrating to the U.K. due to China's increasing suppression in the city.


The website,, was launched in London on Friday by ‘Home for Good’ founder Krish Kandiah with the help of the Bishop of London, Dame Sarah Mullally.

Over five hundred churches have already signed up to be “Hong Kong ready” via the website, which has been launched after the U.K. government opened the door to Hong Kong holders of the British National Overseas (BNO) passport. 

Around 130,000 Hong Kongers are expected to arrive in the U.K. this year on the BNO visa in the largest planned migration to the U.K. since Windrush in 1971.
