Join us as we commemorate World Refugee Day, and revisit Singapore’s engagement with Indochina refugees in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. More than 30,000 refugees were rescued from sea and temporarily hosted at 25 Hawkins Road camp from 1978 to 1996. We reconsider Singapore’s role as a transit point to reflect on new possibilities of engagement in the current Southeast Asian refugee crisis.


*Includes a non-alcoholic beverage! Remaining proceeds goes towards AFR's local and international programmes.
