It was great to catch up with the team at ATLAS last week. ATLAS is based in Athens offering support to the LGBT refugee community. The people it reaches out to face discrimination and prejudice not only from their own communities, but also often from the local LGBT community. So far we have been able to fund emergency accommodation for 2 people in the city as well as the provision of leaflets that were distributed in the Ritsona camp.
The leaflets help connect people to guidance, advice, services, social events and medical help, through a helpline in a number of relevant languages.
