Kakuma Refugee Camp is a large refugee camp located in northwestern Kenya. It was established in 1992 and has since become home to over 180,000 refugees from various countries, including Somalia, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Despite its purpose of providing a safe haven for refugees, the conditions in Kakuma are deplorable and have been described as some of the worst in the world.


One of the most pressing issues in Kakuma is the harsh climate. The camp is located in a remote, arid region of Kenya, where temperatures can reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and drop to near-freezing at night. The lack of shade and vegetation exacerbates the already difficult living conditions, making it challenging for refugees to access clean water, food, and medical care. The hot and dry climate also makes it difficult to grow crops, which leads to food shortages and malnutrition.


Another critical issue in Kakuma is the mistreatment of LGBTQIA+ refugees. Despite the UN Refugee Agency's policy of protecting and supporting refugees regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, LGBTQIA+ refugees in Kakuma face significant discrimination and abuse. They are often subjected to violence, harassment, and arbitrary detention by other refugees and camp staff. In some cases, they are even forced to live in separate sections of the camp or are denied access to basic services such as food, water, and medical care.


Sadly, Kakuma has become a graveyard for many LGBTQIA+ refugees who have fled persecution in their home countries only to face more violence and discrimination in the camp. The lack of protection from the Kenyan government and the failure of international organizations to address the issue have only exacerbated the situation. Many refugees have died from suicide or have been murdered due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.


Kakuma Refugee Camp is a desperate place where LGBTQIA+ refugees face extreme hardship due to its remote location, harsh climate, and lack of basic necessities. LGBTQIA+ refugees are in dire need of protection and support, as they face discrimination and violence on a daily basis. As activists, it is our duty to raise awareness of the situation in Kakuma and demand that governments and international organizations take action to improve the conditions and protect the most vulnerable refugees.

As a non-profit activist and LGBTQIA+ refugee, I stand strongly against discrimination and torture of LGBTQIA+ people in the Kakuma refugee camp. I am deeply concerned about the lives of LGBTQIA+ refugees in the camp, and I advocate for support for those who have fled their home countries due to discrimination, torture, and social stigma from their communities.


These asylum have come to kakuma refugee camp (Kenya) to seek protection and resettlement in safe countries where LGBTQIA+ lives and rights are respected and approved by law. However, the Kakuma refugee camp has become a grave yard for LGBTQIA+ people, where they are being attacked by fellow hateful and homophobic refugees who claim that LGBTQIA+ people are children of the devil and that their culture and religion does not allow them to live with "devils."


Transgender and lesbian refugees have been violently raped and later killed by the homophobic fellow refugees. Discrimination and torture occur in marketplaces and night attacks, and many have been violently beaten, left with big wounds and still being beaten left with scars. Discrimination also occurs in the marketplaces and health centers, where even doctors who are supposed to take care of refugees give wrong medication to LGBTQIA+ refugees because of their sexuality.


Police brutality has led to the death of many LGBTQIA+ people, and the police who are supposed to protect and bring equality among all refugees in the camp have also been involved in discrimination, persecution, torture, and social stigma of LGBTQIA+ refugees. This campaign is to support a group of LGBTQIA+ people in the Kakuma refugee camp, consisting of more than 600 people who are being discriminated against in the market where they cannot find any way of earning a living in the camp.


We seek for medication to the wounded and those with different complications like illness, lameness among others, and essential items like food, proper medication, vital nutrition, pads for lesbians, mosquito nets, clothes, shoes, cooking essentials, clean water, bedding, mattress to try to keep away scorpions and dangerous poisonous desert living things that cause danger to death, basic needs like soap, and tooth among others unlisted.


However, the UNHCR has decided to be careless about the lives of the LGBTQIA+ people in the Kakuma refugee camp. Therefore, we need all your advocacy for a safe place and support for these refugees.


We stand up for equality and justice for every LGBTQIA+ life because everyone deserves to have full access to their rights and freedom. Discrimination and persecution of LGBTQIA+ people are unacceptable, and we must take action to stop it.


To support our cause, we need donations to provide these essential items to the LGBTQIA+ refugees in the Kakuma refugee camp. Your donation will help us save lives and make a difference. Every dollar counts, and we appreciate any support you can give.


We must work together to end discrimination and persecution against LGBTQIA+ people, and your support can make a difference. Join us in our fight for equality and justice for all.

In conclusion, we have recently set up a fundraising page to serve as a continuous platform for collecting donations aimed at helping and supporting the LGBTQIA+🏳️‍🌈 community in Kakuma refugee camp. The donations received will go a long way in advocating for equality for this group and saving lives. We urge you to donate generously to support this noble cause and help make a positive impact in the lives of those in need. Your contribution will make a significant difference and help bring hope to those who need it most. Together, we can make a difference and create a more inclusive and equal society for all.
