raised of £2,000 target by 16 supporters

    Weʼve raised £416 to bring a little joy into the lives of children damaged by the political repressions in Belarus!

    Funded on Thursday, 28th September 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    On July 9th, we’re holding an evening of music of all kinds, poetry and chat called Songs for Belarus in London’s Lauderdale House. We’re trying to raise money to help children whose parents have been caught up in the strife in Belarus since 2020.

    Any money we raise will go to BYSOL’s fund for the children of the thousands of political prisoners, who have been left without a parent, and often even basic funds.

    BYSOL is trying to give the children whose lives have been blighted moments of joy. Funds raised will go to :

    • help organize summer vacations, excursions, trips, travel, summer children's camps ,

    • Educational circles on chess, drawing, etc.;

    • Sports sections: swimming pool, tennis, soccer.

    • Equipment for games: balls, sneakers, games, scooter, bike, rollers, brushes, wadding

    Let’s support these unfortunate children - it will make a real difference

    Alena Maushuk from Pinsk has five children, Tatsiana Kaneuskaya from Homel has four. The women ended up behind bars on charges of riots under Article 293 of the Criminal Code. Human rights activists consider the accusations unfounded and politically motivated. Two of Alena’s children are minors. Ten-year-old Anhelina was taken to the orphanage right from school in early September, the girl is still there. The youngest Maushuk child is five years old, he is now staying with his father.

    Palina Sharenda-Panasiuk, an activist from Brest, a mother of two children under 18, she was sentenced to 3 years in penal colony. For her principles position and for expressing dissent against the injustice and violence in prison, she is often placed in the inhumane conditions of a punitive confinement. Over the last 10 months, she spent there 180 days, tortured by cold, deprivation of sleep, antisanitary conditions and constant humiliation. Her husband was placed under house arrest.

    For her son’s 14th birthday, she sent a letter from prison, saying

    I can’t give you a physical present, so I’m giving you a Word.”

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
