Dear Friends,

Thank you for your ongoing support of RWF's work to help our LGBTQ family around the world. Currently RWF funds are hard at working helping LGBTQ people who are facing danger in El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Iraq, Russia, Syria and Uganda.

Most recently RWF funded the safe passage of several refugees from Iraq and Syria to reach Lebanon where they are starting their asylum cases.
Many of the men and woman we have helped over the years are now living in the US and Europe.
Currently, RWF is helping dozens of men who have left Chechnya to escape kidnapping, imprisonment in secret concentration camps and torture. We are partnered with the Russian LGBT Network to provide psychological and medical support to these men while they are seeking asylum in other countries.  
Please make a donation today. 100% of your gift will be used to help our LGBTQ brothers and sisters reach safety!
