My name is Gemini, I’m 25 years old Lesbian from Kuwait. I’m currently seeking asylum in the uk since 23/11/2021 after fleeing from prosecution for my sexuality and religious beliefs from my abusive family whom my country failed to protect me from. 

I’m still stuck in the system and the process has been extremely stressful and slow. I was able to support myself by doing an online job based in Kuwait remotely, however due to unfortunate circumstances I have lost the job and I no longer can support myself or find a place to stay. I have no rights in the Uk even though I’m eligible for a right to work since 7th of January 2023, the home office hasn’t approved it yet.

 I'm currently facing eviction from my current place on 20th of July 2023. The fear I have been living is unprecedented, my mental health has been deteriorating because of the fear to be left on the streets alone as a young female.

 The only shelter they can offer me is in a different city, away from the few friends and support network I have established. I don't think I could cope without these people. I really hope I get the help I need to continue staying in my home till I get the right to work and be able to support myself.

Any support you can offer, no matter how small is very much appreciated.
