Under most Middle Eastern countries’ laws, LGBTs face systemic persecution and are deemed to be criminals just for being who they are. As a result, they face prosecution and punishment ranging from flogging to the death penalty. Many undergo forced sex changes to avoid the death penalty. As a result, many LGBTs flee to save their lives, leaving their family, friends, love ones and everything else behind by stepping into exiled.
Our mission is to relieve poverty for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) refugees living in Turkey by providing the basic necessities of life; and to relieve poverty by sponsoring, providing financial and resettlement assistance to LGBT refugees in Turkey who have fled because of persecution for their sexual orientation or gender identification and, as victims of human rights abuses; and to undertake activities ancillary and incidental to the attainment of the above charitable purpose.
