This silver spoon was created based on the story of one repressed boy from Belarus.

Danya. He was forced to flee to Poland from a Belarusian hospital in just slippers.
It all started with the fact that in 2020 Danya found out that his friends were arrested for disagreeing with the results of the elections in Belarus and attending a rally. Danya was 15 years old and expressed his protest in his work: Danya sang, played the guitar in a group, and went to single pickets, where the people supported him and stood next to him, but the police did not like it.

Immediately after expressing his position, Danya was "requested" to take away the documents from the educational institution under the threat of deprivation of parental rights from his parents. Danya received death threats from unknown numbers.

But the worst happened in February 2023. Danya was summoned to the military registration and enlistment office to check documents since he was already 18 years old. And in the military registration and enlistment office, instead of checking documents, a criminal case was waiting for him with captured events of 2 years ago:
Photos where he stands with a flag
Video where he sings songs
And personal thoughts about the situation in the country, which he wrote on social networks

The medical commission ignored Danya's confirmed illnesses and told him to prepare for the army. But we managed to get an additional examination since Danya complained about something that was not yet in the documents, and in this case, a check is required.
Danya was sent to the hospital, from where, in slippers with one backpack, he fled to Poland to avoid a criminal case and going to the army for 1.5 years with the prospect of being forced to go to war, which he does not support at all.

Now Danya is already in Poland. After several nights at the station, I managed to find a hostel to support Ukrainians, which agreed to help him with housing temporarily. Communityworx helps with legal registration and adaptation in Poland.
And Danya himself wants to find a job, study in Poland and become a full-fledged member of society without outside support, and then return to creativity again.

Asmalouski co. supports Danya financially, morally, and legally. And from the sale of this spoon, 25% of the proceeds will go to Danya to improve his life. We are going to buy Dana a bike so he can earn a living.
