Support LGBTQI People in Ukraine and Neighbouring Countries

Supporting our Siblings in Ukraine: List of Resources

IGLYO is in contact with organisations working in Ukraine and nearby countries. Organisations are working hard to coordinate safe houses, evacuations, shelters, food and support for LGBTIQ people in Ukraine and those fleeing violence.

The safety of LGBTQI people, especially youth, is strongly threatened by the ongoing armed conflict because the latter exacerbates their intersectional vulnerabilities.

Here are organisations you can help by supporting their fundraisers. If you cannot donate, please consider sharing this page, or the page of the organisations listed.

Directly giving to organisations working on the ground is the best way you can help LGBTQI people in the region.
