Helping a single father who has been subjected to reprisals for his civic stance

  • Story

In August 2020, I stopped running my business in protest of election fraud long before the strikes. As a result, I lost my income and the ability to support my child. I participated in all the marches and yard initiatives. 

I was detained at one of the actions in the fall. Before the trial I spent two days in a four-person cell with eight people. During that time my kid was alone and was very worried because I couldn't say anything to him, even though I asked the staff to. I was convicted under 23.34 and fined. I do not pay the fine on the principle of innocence. I was summoned for interrogation, where I was threatened that a criminal case has been opened against me for insulting a police officer.

At the moment I'm taking part in the district initiative. I'm in Belarus and I don't want to leave, because I think I belong in my home country. I need help to provide good living conditions for my child.

How much is needed?

1,500€ — college tuition for the child; clothes and food; utilities.
