“Everyone has the right to a nationality”

The Centre for Refugee Support

The Centre for Refugee Support is a non-governmental organisation which was founded on October 4, 2015 by Alena Mikhalevich. Our mission is to create a society in which all people who seek protection are equally welcome. We are committed to the rights and protection of refugees in Belarus as well as their settlement and safety in our country. We initially started providing free consulting services for refugees, asylum seekers and displaced individuals and by the end of 2016 we had carried out 135 consultations, mostly for displaced persons from Ukraine. We started an informational campaign about other organizations in Belarus that provide financial support for refugees and asylum seekers, and we cooperate with local authorities, lawyers and media.
