Borys has earned a reputation as a man with a big heart and a veteran “streetfighter” for the rule of law, democracy and human rights. Today he needs our support.
On 7 August, Borys Stankiewicz suffered a stroke and was taken to the Dr W. Roefler Railway Hospital in Pruszków. Immediate medical treatment significantly reduced the consequences of the stroke, although it could not prevent all damage. Borys has facial and arm paresis, and his cognitive abilities are restricted. The prognosis is good, but prolonged and expensive rehabilitation will be required, which Borys cannot afford. He will be able to get to work in no less than six months, and he faces, among other things, having to learn to read and write again. The Open Dialogue Foundation, where Boris is an employee, has therefore launched a fundraiser for his rehabilitation.
Open Dialogue Foundation: “Borys has earned a reputation as a man with a big heart and a veteran “streetfighter” for the rule of law, democracy and human rights. He has repeatedly participated in humanitarian missions to Ukraine, was a paramedic during the pandemic and rallied with young angry people in defence of climate.”
Borys, together with Paweł Kasprzak and several other activists, was one of the first to actively speak out against Andrzej Duda in defence of the Polish Constitution (with a banner calling him a “liar” and a “perjurer”). He was an activist of Citizens Solidary in Action (Obywatele Solidarnie w Akcji), Citizens of the Republic of Poland (Obywatele RP) and an activist of the Greens. He has supported the activities of many initiatives and organisations (including the Committee for the Defence of Democracy (KOD), and foundations like Fundacja Anioły Miłosierdzia and Fundacja Znaki Pamięci).
