About this campaign

"The Refugee Council helped me in ways I cannot imagine. I would like to volunteer in the future help other young people in similar situations.”
Farai, child refugee

Farai was just 13 when he began to be bullied and abused by his local community in Harare, Zimbabwe, because they suspected he was gay. Farai feared members of his own family might attack or even kill him.

He fled to the UK for safety, hoping for a warm welcome. But with no support network he was self-harming and suicidal within weeks.

Luckily, thanks to supporters like you, Farai found support, guidance and friendship in the Refugee Council’s Youth Development programme. He is now taking singing lessons, so he can join his local church choir and DJs at our evening social sessions.

Thank you for choosing to help refugees today.
