6th August 5PM: Thrift for Solidarity: Fundraiser for Syrian LGBTIQ+@ Maori
MGRM, YMCA Malta, Moviment Graffitti and friends will be thrifting to fundraise for our LGBTQI+ siblings in Syria.
While for a lot of Maltese, the earthquake was a news item that we heard of earlier this year, people are still suffering from the after effects, causing an indescribable trauma to a magnitude of which we can’t possibly understand.
While there has been amazing international support we know that international aid does not reach everyone equally, because society doesn’t deem everyone equal. The politicians that oppress the LGBTQI+ community in. Syria are the same that have responded inadequately to the worst natural disaster to ever hit the region.
Taxes raised for earthquake disaster relief are being misspent and the lack of disaster relief preparedness has cost too many lives.
Having already done one for a Turkish organisation last March, we were also meant to fund for a Syrian organisation, however, for reasons mentioned above, this required a bit more research and logistics, to ensure that the funds will ultimately reach the community.
