Voor mijn verjaardag, doneer voor Cosir!

Dit jaar wordt ik 55 en wil graag een goed doel financieel ondersteunen.
Cosir Kenya helpt LHBTQI vluchtelingen praktisch of financieel als ze in de problemen komen in Nairobi. Waar we hier in Nederland in vrijheid kunnen zijn wie we willen, is in andere landen nog een lange weg te gaan. Vandaar mijn keuze voor dit goede doel en mijn verjaardagswens aan jullie om dit doel te steunen met een donatie van 5 euro/dollar of een veelvoud daarvan.
Community Support Initiative for Refugees (CoSIR) is een geregistreerde non-profit organisatie voor de ondersteuning van LGBTQI vluchtelingen in Nairobi.

Since 2016, the Community Support Initiative for Refugees (CoSIR Kenya) has been advocating for the rights and dignity of LGBTIQ+ refugees in Nairobi, Kenya at the grassroots level. Through our emergency shelter housing program, we have and continue to  provide emergency shelter to exceptionally vulnerable members of the LGBTIQ+ urban refugee community . In addition, through skills training and livelihood initiatives that we run as CoSIR and in conjunction with our partners, we have and will continue to enable this community to become more self-reliant. In this effort we are guided buy our core values

o Everyone deserves to live a pleasant and pain-free life.
o Human rights and equality must be upheld at all times.
o Dignity matters most

We could not have accomplished so much without your help, and as such we will be eternally thankful to all who have and continue to support us.

As the world continues to cope with unprecedented challenges posed by the global COVID-19 pandemic, the most vulnerable members of the community we serve—LGBTIQ+ refugees in Nairobi—risk starvation and homelessness.

We're looking for donations to help support ten LGBTIQ+ refuges that don't have food or a place to call home. This money will go towards purchasing vital items to assist vulnerable members of our community who have become homeless as a result of the pandemic.

Three of the ten are already residents of the CoSIR Communityshelter, but they receive no support. Five have received eviction notices from where they stay and are awaiting admission to the Shelter, while two others are sharing a single room for which they have not paid rent in three months and receive no support.

The items and services we plan to buy with the funds are as follows:
Food for 10 persons for a period of three months
National Hospital Insurance Fund NHIF Monthly contribution for each of them for at least five months.
Any amount left will go into supporting CoSIR tailoring skills training cohort.
Because they are all unvaccinated, a part of the funds will be used to transport the ten to immunization centers for the CoVID-19 vaccine.

Thank you for your support
