Why we volunteer

Our team shares their love of helping refugees

“It’s been such a pleasure to donate my skills to this incredible organization alongside the talented Social Media team. I am deeply honoured to help LGBTQ+refugees and newcomers resettle in Canada.”

– Warley Silva
Special Event Marketing

“As a queer person myself, I always had a passion to give back to my community. Being part of the RFOH Social Media team has been an opportunity to do so. RFOH vision of making the world a safer space for the LGBTQ+ community is in alignment with my own. Therefore, I feel grateful for the opportunity to volunteer in a place where we can support a safer migration of LGBTQ+ refugees and newcomers to Canada.”

– Flavia Silva
Volunteer Coordinator

“I volunteer because it is only by luck I have the ability to live in a safe country that allows me to be who I am. With this comes a great deal of privilege and responsibility.

Learning about the disproportionate struggle and violence members of the LGBTQ+ face has been eye-opening. No matter their gender identity, everyone deserves a chance to feel safe and to thrive in their communities.

This is why I volunteer with RFoH, in hopes of making a positive impact in the lives of LGBTQ+ people at risk.”

– Isabella Bianchin
Social Media Manager

“You learn and grow from your life experiences…..

I have many friends from the LGBTQ community, and I adore the bond I share with them. They give me strength, the strength to speak for yourself and achieve what you want.”

– Rashi Modi
Social Media Manager

“I want to help out and contribute to communities that are important to me. I believe it is unfair that some of us don’t have the same rights as others purely on the basis of gender identity. I know that RFOH strives to foster equality and I am very grateful I get to volunteer with them.”
