Dear friends,

We have great news! Thanks to your support, we’ve managed to raise the money to post bail for Brenda, the young trans woman who was jailed in Kodiaga. She got out this morning and is currently staying with a relative.

This is a great step forward, but the struggle is not over. Brenda’s case will still go to court at a date to be determined, and in the meantime she will have to recuperate from her ordeal before seeking work in a safe environment. We are still seeking support for necessities for Brenda as her case continues, and will keep you up to date on the progress here.

For questions, contributions or messages of solidarity, please contact one of the following:

Thank you for your encouragement and love!

In solidarity,

VOWWEK and Jinsiangu
