Duong assists Tai A Chau

Photograph of Lloyd Duong (Dương Thành Lợi), president of the Vietnamese Abroad Centre (2018-20), interviewing Tai A Chau, a Vietnamese asylum seeker living in a detention centre in Hong Kong, on Christmas day in 1993. Lloyd Duong, who works as a lawyer, had himself left Vietnam as a teenage refugee and travelled to Hong Kong in order to “advocate compassion for voiceless people”. Whilst there the future PEN Centre president spent his time assisting Vietnamese refugees whose asylum petition had been rejected to file an appeal to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for reconsideration. In this photograph Duong, seated on the left, can be seen interviewing Tai A Chau, on the right, as part of this mission – a mission that reflects the Vietnamese Abroad Centre’s vision and motto: “Promote the Voices of Conscience and the Echoes of Compassion of Vietnamese across the Globe.”

Duong ayuda a Tai A Chau

Fotografía de Lloyd Duong (Dương Thành Lợi), presidente del Centro Vietnamita en el Extranjero (2018-20) entrevistando a Tai A Chau, un solicitante de asilo en un centro de detención en Hong Kong, el día de Navidad de 1993. Lloyd Duong, que trabaja de abogado, fue él mismo un refugiado adolescente, y viajó a Hong Kong para «trabajar por la compasión hacia la gente sin voz».

En esta fotografía, Duong, sentado a la izquierda, puede verse entrevistando a Tai A Chau, derecha, dentro de la misión, que refleja el lema y visión del Centro Vietmanita en el Extranjero: «Promote the Voices of Conscience and the Echoes of Compassion of Vietnamese across the Globe.»
