The crisis in Ukraine has brought misery to all citizens. LGBTQ+ Ukrainians, however, have the added danger of possible discrimination if they seek refuge in popular Eastern European destinations such as Poland and Hungary. According to the BBC, "around 100 towns and regions across Poland, nearly a third of the country, have passed resolutions declaring themselves free of "LGBT ideology".
Matthew Siegal Goodworx Foundation has launched a special fund to help LGBTQ+ people in Ukraine evacuate to welcoming countries in Western Europe and North America.
Established in January 2022, the Foundation's Back on Their Feet Fund™ alleviates acute financial distress experienced by individuals and families in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Grants of up to $10,000 are made to those who are experiencing a short-term financial crisis that can be fully resolved with a one-time cash grant. Examples include victims of natural disasters, crime and temporary illness. Grant requests are accepted from recognized charitable organizations that apply on behalf of individual, qualifying clients.
