Providing Disaster Relief to the LGBTI Persons in the Caribbean
LGBTI people have been left out of Caribbean disaster relief in the wake of a series of 2017 hurricanes that struck the region–in part because much of the recovery funding is filtered through families, and local authorities. The Caribbean Vulnerable Communities (CVC) Coalition, which provides HIV prevention and treatment to vulnerable Caribbean populations, also assists these communities in the aftermath of natural disasters. This campaign supports Hurricane Irma relief efforts.
Contributions to this campaign will go to the Rustin Fund for Global Equality at Tides Foundation, which supports the work of LGBTI organizations in low- and middle-income countries. We will recommend that proceeds go to Caribbean Vulnerable Communities (CVC) Coalition to support grassroots efforts.
