Benefit Voku to support Phoenix Amsterdam

Thursday 29 june 2023, Benefit Voku to support Phoenix Amsterdam. Food served from 7pm, no reservation.

This Voku Benefit goes to support Phoenix Amsterdam, a safe space and peer support community under het Wereldhuis for LGBTQ!+ people in forced displacement. Phoenix is self-organized, meeting several times a month to cook, share information and build community after what is often a very difficult journey to the Netherlands. Right now, they are working towards their independence, because they currently receive a small stipend from the Diaconie van de Protestantse Gemeente te Amsterdam, which isn’t nearly enough to support their work in the community (e.g. paying for legal aid). They are also on the lookout for an office space, so information as well as donations is much appreciated!
