Since we founded the Guantanamo Survivors Fund in April 2022, we have:

  • Raised more than $40,000 from donors in the US and around the world to help survivors
  • Interviewed ten survivors in need
  • Distributed or approved grants to provide:
     
    • Six months’ rent and utilities for three survivors and their families and school fees so a survivor’s daughter can attend kindergarten
    • Prosthetic supplies for an amputee
    • Down payment for a used car so a disabled survivor unable to manage his heavy workload and schedule can open a small taxi service instead
    • Travel assistance and medical costs for eye surgery to prevent a survivor from losing his sight
    • Partial funding for the purchase of a small apartment for a survivor’s widow and three young children
    • Rent, food, and medical expenses for a survivor who is too ill to work

We have just begun, as hundreds of Guantanamo survivors still need our help. The small gifts we've been able to provide mean a lot to former Guantanamo prisoners who suffered for so many years in prison only to find themselves on their own after their transfer.

As 2022 comes to a close, we hope you will consider making a gift to the Guantanamo Survivors Fund so in the year ahead we can continue to show the men and their families they are not alone.
