Sign to help lgbtiq refugees at Block 13 Kakuma camp in Kenya get evacuated to a safe place. #freeblock13Kakuma
We are a group of almost 189 lgbtiq refugees at Block 13 in Kenya Kakuma camp, help us by signing this petition to UNHCR to get us evacuated to a safe place than where we are at Block 13 that we are currently undergoing deadly constant homophobic attacks, blood shedding, sexual assaults, house burns, genocides, etc.
We have been all along crying to UNHCR Kenya to help us get a more safe place for us but all is in vain and we can't get helped till now. We are spending nights outside in a compound since houses are set on fire and its risky to stay indoors at night than out doors no matter the wheather.

Now am here to call upon everyone help is sign this petition to UNHCR Kenya and UNHCR Geneva to give us some where we can stay without anyone discriminating us, attacking us, raping us, burning our houses, etc.
Sadly, not even the police, doctors, and other service providers are ready to help us especially when we need them.
