In the early morning hours of Wednesday, Dec 14, 2022, the house where five trans women lived together in Bundibugyo Uganda was raided by police. Three of the women managed to flee, but two others were beaten by police and local people, screaming “Are you men or women?”
The two women were arrested and taken to the local police station where they were sexually assaulted and further beaten.
We are assisting a local organization help all five escape to the local organization’s trans shelter in a safer place.
The local organization has arranged to free the two jailed women and provided medical care. We are extracting all five to a safer place.
Work like this requires funds. If you can, please give a small gift to help this keep happening.
