My name is Alexander Grechishnikov and I am an unregistered candidate for President of the Republic of Belarus in 2020. Acting as an active opponent of dictator Lukashenko, I have participated in marches, pickets and roadblocks. When they took me out to search my and my parents' apartment, I managed to escape and leave Belarus.
At the moment I am in Lithuania together with my family of five people. We are waiting for a decision about refugee status. I found a job in Lithuania, but I had a conflict with the person who worked before me and in whose place I was hired. This man beat me up, deliberately crushed my arm with the heels of his shoe. Now I have a broken joint and need urgent surgery.
I filed a report to the police and a criminal case was opened regarding the attack. The Red Cross, which oversees my health as a refugee pending a decision — refuse to help, citing a lack of money. I would be very grateful to anyone who would help me in getting my health back on track.
How much is needed?
1,500 € — preliminary examination; care in a private clinic; several operations over 6 months.
