Again and again we receive desperate emergency calls from LGBT refugees and women, often with children. They write to us in existential distress. Many refugees are not entitled to support, e.g. because they are not yet registered, because their asylum application has been rejected or because their asylum application has been accepted. And even refugees who are in the asylum process sometimes do not know where they can find support. The consequences are often homelessness, hunger, all forms of exploitation and violence.
In order to be able to help in the long term, Just Human is involved in Athens with two caseworker. They speak personally with the people who are seeking help in emergency situations. And depending on individual needs, they offer referrals to other agencies and/or direct emergency assistance from Just Human.
As far as we are able, we offer support in renting safe sleeping places or housing for LGBT refugees, families and women, whether with children or not. In our shelter “Maison Charlotte” we also have 12 own living places for women and children.
Every donation is sustainable help for people in need
In South Africa, Cameroon, DR Congo and Ethiopia, Just Human 2021 has also provided emergency aid and supported existing projects for LGBT and for women and children. This has enabled food aid, school attendance, medical treatment and protection for women and children at Safe House Bredasdorp/South Africa.
We are especially grateful for regular donations that enable us to plan our activities.
