Solidarity with LSBTTIQ refugees
We stand up for human rights, especially for the rights of women and girls and LGBTTIQ people (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transsexuals, transgender, intersexuals and queers). In addition, we support measures and projects to enforce and consolidate human rights, such as political and legal engagement, lobbying and public relations work.
Cooperation with Safe Place International in Athens
To support LSBTTIQ refugees, just human has been cooperating with Safe Place International (SPI) since the beginning of June 2019. SPI offers LGBTTIQ refugees in Athens safe accommodation, advice and help in finding accommodation and work for 6 to 12 months, but cannot offer any longer-term assistance. just human will now step in if individual refugees need further transitional support afterwards. LSBTTIQ refugees who are destitute and have no accommodation are also supported by just human, as far as this is financially possible.
Donations for LSBTTIQ refugees
we forward 100% to LSBTTIQ refugees who are in need
Information on the legal situation of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transsexuals, Transgender * worldwide exists here.
just human visits Safe Place International – Cooperation is being expanded
From October 14 to 20, 2019, Katja Walterscheid and Elka Edelkott, members of the board of just human, were in Athens to get to know the services of Safe Place International in Athens and to plan further cooperation. The request to support a young man for a few months, who is without a cashcard and therefore without own funds, was immediately accepted by just human. During this time, a lawyer will support him to get access to a cashcard. Many refugees in Greece receive a cashcard of 120 € – depending on the status of the asylum procedure. Donations under the donation purpose “LSBTTIQ Refugees” enable support here.
From 30 January to 4 February 2020, Ophélie Lawson met LSBTTIQ refugees in Athens who were or are still being supported by just human. A young man has now found work and is no longer dependent on help. Many other LSBTTIQ refugees live in Athens without money and without a home in great need. We are thankful for every support!
