***URGENT*** FTM Asylum Seeker; Room in Safe House Needed or donations.
Press for Change supporting an FTM asylum seeker, who has left
transphobic violence at home to seek safety. Early 40's, Indian, FTM,
ex-Lawyer, Social Worker & MBA educated. He has waited 5 months for UK
Border Agency, but they are refusing all asylum interviews, meaning he
(and many, many others) are not allowed to work or get benefits. Now he
has no money left at all.
Samir is Birmingham based but will travel for safety. He has a red cross
food parcel for 1 week, and no money.
Was thrown out of last room 3 weeks ago, by landlord in horrible violent
sexual attack, so he is currently between floors and most nights are
spent walking the streets at great risk. Homeless shelter for men only
so refused him on grounds of safety.
He has asked to be put into detention – as he would be housed and
fed, but has been refused.
Please Offer a room by mail: email@example.com or by leaving message on 0161 432 1915,
or if no room, please consider making donation at http://transequality.co.uk/Donations.aspx
This time your charity really will make a difference to one person who
you can all get to know.
Any surplus money will be placed into a dedicated fund to help other
Asylum and Refugee trans people in the UK.
Many, many thanks
