Why Donate?

The refugee process is long and arduous. Many individuals face discrimination and fear while waiting for their claims to be processed. Often, many individuals struggle to cover the basic necessities of life, including food and shelter.

Through education, guidance and support, IRQR provide individuals making asylum claims, outside of Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and during their resettlement process, with a chance for a new life. IRQR accepts several methods of payment.

IRQR runs on a very small budget. Our tiny staff works hard to run life-changing campaigns and projects at the drop of a dime, whenever they’re needed most. Your donations go directly towards the costs to keep running the IRQR missions which is relieving poverty for LGBT refugees in Turkey by providing the basic necessities of life. Your donation will help cover a number of crucial parts of our work:

  • $10 is enough to provide one day meal (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) to one refugee. Make that happen.
  • $50 will buy enough basic food for a week for of a refugee. Make that happen.
  • $100 will buy regular medications and nutrients for LGBT refugees who are living with HIV/AIDS for a month. Make that happen.
  • $150 will buy enough basic food for a month and cover some medical expenses. Make that happen.
  • $200 will cover the rent of one month for a LGBT refugee in Turkey. Make that happen.
  • $250 will cover the rent and food of one month for a LGBT refugee in Turkey. Make that happen.
