We're Women of Belarus
We are fighting for the Freedom!
Today repression, legal default, violence has become a new normal in Belarus. Today, in Belarus, women of diferent age and background can be arrested for going to the peacful protest, for wearing a white and red dress or for carring flowers. Today when women in Belarus leave their houses to go to work and schools dont know if they will make it back home or end up in the prison. Today no woman is protected from her child being removed by the social services for stating her political views.
Since the falsified presidential elections in Belarus, women have played a leading role in opposition to the regime. During this political crisis in Belarus women have been particularly vulnerable to repression and denial by the regime of their right to voice their political views.
BELARUS WOMEN'S FOUNDATION is an international foundation for targeted humanitarian aid and support to women of Belarus, based on the social solidarity movement.
Our Big Goal
IN THE LONG TERM, WE AIM TO EMPOWER WOMEN SO THAT THEY MAY BACOME LEADERS IN THEIR OWN LIVES, AND THE FUTURE OF THEIR COUNTRY
Our overarching aim in the short term is to meet immediate needs by providing focused humanitarian assistance to women who have experienced violence, threats, repression, financial loss and unemployment as a result of their political views.
