Your donation could support an LGBT refugee to settle in Winnipeg. Private sponsorship of refugees is based on a commitment to pay costs for up to one year of the refugee’s stay in Winnipeg, or when the person has become self-sufficient, whichever is first. There are many people willing to participate in refugee resettlement that cannot afford the full cost of sponsorship. Financial support will increase the number of LGBT refugees that can be resettled from very dangerous situations around the world.
Donations may also support an LGBT refugee claimant from the time they claim refugee status, to when they are connected with a private or community sponsor to help them get basic needs before they come here, as well as to potentially help a persecuted LGBT person escape to a safer country so they can begin the refugee process. From start to finish, a great amount of support is needed and every cent counts.
