Micro Rainbow works with about 400 LGBTI migrants every year, providing them with a holistic approach to integration that has three pillars:
- Social inclusion
- Moving on support.
During 'normal' times LGBTI migrants face homelessness, social exclusion and poverty. At this critical time Micro Rainbow realised that the LGBTI migrant community faces increased challenges as a direct result of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We have received more requests for housing as many LGBTI migrants have lost their jobs in the informal sector and, as a result their homes too.
Many were also living with friends who, since the COVID-19 pandemic started and social distancing became a necessity, have asked them to leave.
