The Need

Many LGBTI people around the world are victims of persecution and violence because of their sexual or gender identity or intersex status. They face imprisonment or the death penalty just because of who they are and who they love. Those who can, leave their countries behind and come to Spain and Catalonia in search of safety.
However, when they come they are not safe and face several challenges. One of these challenges is homelessness.

LGBTI asylum seekers are often unsafe as reception assistance is slow to arrive or is not sufficient. They have reported that they have been harassed and assaulted by others with whom they are temporarily housed. They are often forced to live on the streets. In turn, homelessness exposes them to more abuse and violence.

Part of the Solution

In our experience, the abuse suffered by LGBTI asylum seekers is due to the extreme vulnerability of surviving without a social network and family upon arrival; becoming homeless at a critical time in their lives: when they are trying to save their lives and secure their right to remain in Spain. This is why ACATHI’s safe housing project is so vital.

ACATHI decided to create safe homes where LGBTI asylum seekers can be safe while going through the exhausting asylum process.

It is also true that some needs are not met by any one resource, these needs are very diverse especially when we are talking about Trans people. For this reason you will find a wish list from Amazon that allows for the coverage of products and items for the daily life of LGBTI asylum seekers.

How can you help?

Offering safe rooms and providing the extra support needed by LGBTI asylum seekers is expensive. However, together we can ensure that each person receives adequate bedding, food and clothing.

We also have to buy many personal hygiene items throughout the year, such as sheets and duvets. If you want to help us buy those items, the easiest way is to send us a gift card from Amazon.
