Financial report and results of our work for March 2022

For more than a month, there has been a war unleashed by Russia against the courageous people of Ukraine. A war in which lukashenka's regime acted as an accomplice of the aggressor. All this time, the "A Country to Live in" foundation team is trying to find a balance between helping Ukrainian refugees and Belarusian political prisoners and those Belarusians who fled the war from Ukraine.

Read about what we have already done and what we plan to do shortly. Thank you for your continued support! You can download the full report for March here.

The war in Ukraine and the atrocities of the Russian military in Bucha, Mariupol, and other cities pushed the Belarusian agenda far to the periphery. However, more than a thousand people are still in the terrible conditions of Belarusian prisons, where sadists in uniform invented new terms of imprisonment for them. The pressure on civil society is still unabated. We must remember that the people of Belarus are being held hostage by two dictators at once. For our part, we will continue to do everything possible to help Belarusian political prisoners.
