BYSOL fundraising

Support the families of political prisoners

In Belarus, 495 people ended up in prisons because they did not want to turn the blind eye to the terrible actions of the authorities. Support is needed not only for them but also for their families.

Help to dismissed

Choosing between well-being and a clear conscience is not easy for everyone. Let's support the Belarusians who have lost their jobs for choosing an active civil position against the inhumane regime.

Emergency relocation

In conditions of political persecution, threats to human freedom, life and health we help families to leave Belarus safely and quickly.

Private fundraising

Will the perpetrators of torture be punished? What is universal jurisdiction?

Belarusian human rights defenders use the mechanism of universal jurisdiction to punish the police and riot police officers who tortured people at the protests in August and continue to torture them to this day for crimes against humanity. Let's try to understand how universal criminal jurisdiction works.

Important post about security

In helping yards, the most important thing for BYSOL has always been and will be safety. For this reason, only 2 people in the fund are working on receiving and verifying applications.
