Support LGBTI refugees and other people impacted by crises across the Arab world
Support two organizations, HELEM and the Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality (AFE), which are based in Lebanon and work with LGBTI refugees and other people across the region.
AFE’s core purpose is enable lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people to become full, respected participants in societies across the Middle East and North Africa. Much of the work centers on HIV prevention and treatment, especially among men who have sex with men. It also documents the growth of the region’s gender and sexual freedom movements, and works on security and censorship issues that often inhibit freedom.
HELEM is a Beirut-based organization that works to protect and expand the rights of LGBTI people in Lebanon.
Contributions to this campaign will go to the Rustin Fund for Global Equality, which supports the work of LGBTI organizations working in developing economies. We will recommend that proceeds from these donations go to HELEM and AFE.
