$1M and counting fundraised for Belarus repression victims

Street protests in Minsk / Euroradio

The By_help campaign has raised at least one million dollars to help Belarusians arrested or injured during the protests. The campaign has collected $760 thousand in the last four days alone when mass protests were violently dispersed.

"One million. A million for the wounded, for the arrested, for the crippled. Tomorrow we will post a procedure on how to seek help for those who were injured in the clashes," the campaign coordinator Laksiej Lavončyk wrote on Facebook.

The money-raising campaign was launched on June 25, 2020. At first, the money was collected to pay fines for the people detained during the election campaign.

People can apply for help via the By_help webpage.
