The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected all of humanity, especially people who belong to vulnerable groups.

In particular, women, LGBT+ persons, sex workers, and people living with disabilities have faced increased barriers to healthcare, loss of jobs, homelessness, poverty, and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, sex characteristics, among others.


In response to this, TIERs has created the Covid-19 Relief Diversity Fund, to provide need-based financial assistance to eligible persons.

This fund is targeted at reducing the effects of the pandemic by providing one-time interventions for emergencies, including accommodation, healthcare (including mental health) needs, feeding, transportation and other similar needs.
