A year has passed since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan but we at MCC Toronto have not forgotten Afghans who remain at risk. Last year, we launched an LGBTQ+ Afghan Refugee Response Program to assist these highly vulnerable members of Afghan society. The media has reported that the Taliban has a “kill list” of LGBTQ+ individuals and many have had to flee for their lives.
MCC Toronto remains committed to resettling as many LGBTQ+ refugees as possible but we currently have a waitlist of over 50 people in need of assistance.
You can help:
- Form a “settlement team” of 5 people and fundraise $18,250 to sponsor and support an individual refugee. While this may seem daunting, we are here to support you in truly transforming a life.
- Donate to support an existing team.
