“Help is needed”09.08.2023 | cb — No comments
We as Munich Kyiv Queer continue collecting stories from LGBTIQ* in Ukraine asking them how they live under war circumstances. We want to raise awareness for the situation of this vulnerable social group and mobilize support like donations. This is the story of Nelly.
Nelly and her girlfriend stayed in Kherson the whole time. The city was occupied by the Russians early in the beginning of the war, then liberated by Ukrainian forces. But the shelling continues. Nelly says it is going on every day. VIDEO
People like her have no job, no income, fear about their lives. This is why her family is so grateful to NGOs like “You are not alone” in Zhytomyr who sends them money and moral support.
“You are not alone” is supported by the German Alliance Queere Nothilfe Ukraine (Queer Emergency Aid Ukraine) of which Munich Kyiv Queer is a part. It is your money that helps here! Your contribution has an effect: Nelly and her girlfriend are able to survive in the war thanks to your support!
Thanks to the NGO “You are not alone”, especially Oleksandra Semenova, for carrying out this video project with us. Thanks to Matt and Stas for working on the subtitles. And thanks to Nikita for the translation to Ukrainian.
This is how you can donate
INDIVIDUAL HELP Munich Kyiv Queer has its own fundraising campaign via www.paypal.me/ConradBreyer to support people in Ukraine who need help and are not organised in the local LGBTIQ*-groups. We can help fast, directly and unbureaucratically.
HELP FOR LGBTIQ* ORGANISATIONS To support LGBTIQ* in Ukraine we have helped set up the Alliance Queer Emergency Aid Ukraine, in which around 40 German LGBTIQ* Human Rights organisations are involved. All these groups have access to very different Human Rights organisations in Ukraine and use funds for urgently needed care or evacuation of queer people. Every donation helps and is used 100 percent to benefit queer people in Ukraine. Donate here
