Ari's Circle

Ari is an LGBT person who escaped his hometown in the Middle East and has been a refugee in Turkey for three years. Refugees in Turkey encounter a lot of difficulties because of their Refugee status, sexual orientation, and nationality.

Ari is a caring, patinate, and optimistic young person. He wants to become a social consular and live a life without the fear of being prosecuted for his sexual orientation.

Through a program by Rainbow Refugee along with incredible community volunteers, we are aiming to bring Ari to safety and help him adjust to living in Canada. We need to raise $18,000 to start the application process. We will need at least $25,000, so Ari has the support he needs for a year of living in Vancouver, Canada.

Please support us get started by donating! Follow us to stay updated on the journey, fundraising efforts, and other relevant information. Follow us on our Instagram social media for updates and events @freedomcircle
