Rainbow Humanitarianism


Founded in 2000, Rainbow World Fund is the world's first and only all-volunteer, LGBT-based humanitarian aid organization. RWF's mission is to promote peace, unity and hope by leading the LGBT movement in participating in local and humanitarian relief efforts. RWF works to help people affected by natural disasters, hunger, poverty, disease, oppression and war by raising awareness in, and funds from, the LGBT community to support relief efforts around the world. Learn more here. 

Action Alert: Please be part of the LGBT community's caring response to the refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East. Millions are fleeing from conflicts in the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa. LGBT refugees are at particular risk as the instability in many regions has left them more vulnerable to isolation and attacks. RWF's partner, Heartland Alliance, is on the ground providing aid. 100% of donations to RWF's Refugee Relief Fund will go directly to helping those most in need. Donate today please specify "Refugees".
