  1. I think theres a mistake in the article
    “$200,000 (£132.760)”

    Im pretty sure £200,000 dollers is a lot more than £132.76

    1. Not really .It takes $1.32 cents CD to buy one Pound Sterling. Ofcourse years ago it was $2.00 to one pound Strling.but the value of the pound has fallen.

    How about a similarly type funding for embattled LGBTQI folk on homo- trans-phobic British Overseas Territories, too, please…

    1. Yes Well first you Brits need to get your own house in order. Before you can go off telling the rest of the world how to behave. Canada put its face to this cause many years ago . 2005 to be exact. and long before that for gay rights. But lets hope Britain can find the moral fortitude to do the right thing. And your government can help these people too.

    The CDA is trading at 1.5302 for the Pound, so, the help amounts to 132,760 GBP. This amount can do quite a lot in Uganda.

    Rejection, fear, shame, guilt, disease, homelessness, poverty and the like prevail in the LGBTi Community in Jinja Eastern Uganda… because of the stigma caused by the Ugandan Penal Code, religious teachings, cultural beliefs and the negative reports by the press and media. These hate campaigns engaged-in by political leaders have also devastated our lives. Stand with us in solidarity by supporting our cause on http://www.gofundme.com/gehouganda

  6. Thank you Canada !!!!!!!!
