Love has no gender! Thousands of Syrian LGBTQIA+ people are exposed to severe safety threats, discrimination and violence in exacerbation of those created by the Syrian crisis and asylum. Syrian LGBTQIA+ people face escalated experiences of economic, social, and security crises, and are fighting for their most basic rights which are often stripped further because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. We believe that everyone deserves equal rights and that who you are and who you love should not be a factor to consider in the justification of that fact.
You can contribute to positive change by donating to our mission and/or specific programs. At this time we are also providing an exclusive opportunity for you to become an instigator of change by accepting proposals for programs that you think will help enact positive change for our beneficiaries more effectively, if accepted you can donate directly to your proposed program!
Solidarity in the Face of Inequality is our mantra, we believe that we are stronger together and to make sustainable positive change we need you!
