Destitution Appeal for Refugee Families 2017

Positive Action in Housing's Lifeline Project provides free shelter, crisis grants for food, travel and baby provisions to refugees and those seeking asylum in the UK who are without recourse to funds of any kind. Having crossed the Mediteranean to reach safety many people face years in and out of destitution because of the UK asylum system. "Refused" people have no right to housing, jobs or state support. In 2016-17, we gave out £42,200 in very small crisis grants to the most vulnerable and needy. Since September 2015, we have arranged over 29,000 nights of shelter in the homes of our wonderful refugee hosts. Our winter surgery in 2016 assisted more than 300 beneficiaries over just 2 days. We anticipate greater demand this year, especially from destitute women with babies and young children, the elderly and sick. Any donation you give, no matter how small, is appreciated. £20 will provide food for a child for a week. Every penny you donate goes towards providing humanitarian relief for destitute people in the vicinity of Glasgow and London, the main areas of asylum dispersal, and elsewhere that demand arises.

After learning that female refugees are often required to pay for their own DNA tests to prove their children's biological relation, I was disgusted. This is the least I can do.
