Rainbow Connection for Refugee Women is a volunteer settlement team that privately sponsors Lesbian/Transwomen refugees or couples, fleeing persecution in their country of origin due to their sexual orientation/gender identity and LGBTQ+ or women’s human rights work. Through the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto (MCC Toronto)'s LGBTQ Refugee Program, we’ve selected and applied to the government to sponsor a couple who’ve been approved and will arrive shortly.
We’re grateful we live where and when we do. The size of the world’s refugee crisis is numbing. But we can help Lesbian/Transwomen refugees courageous enough to do human rights work despite dangers, but who now need to build new lives in safety in Canada. Through MCC Toronto’s Refugee Program, we’ll use your donations to provide a year of financial support and settlement supports like finding housing, healthcare, documentation, education, employment, furniture, transportation and emotional support. Help us to help them build new lives.
