ABOUT THE BENEFICIARY
Reaching Out Winnipeg (ROW) is a small, grassroots, volunteer-based organization that makes a big difference for a small number of people. These differences, in most cases, are life saving and always life changing.
ROW was created in 2012 to help our sisters and brothers from other countries who face serious persecution and intense discrimination, based on sexual orientation or gender identity. People within the sexual orientation/gender identity minority (SOGI) are abused in many countries around the world. Few people are aware how awful the situation really is. There are many countries with laws designed to persecute SOGI people.
ROW’s objective is to create an increased number of permanent resettlement opportunities for SOGI asylum seekers here in Winnipeg. Newly sponsored people to Winnipeg are provided financial and social supports for a full year. The costs per person for the year can well exceed $20,000. ROW members help with physical and mental health care needs, finding suitable accommodation, employment, as well as the many other steps in the adjustment to a new life in Canada.
