Roberto Casanueva was born in Cuba. He has lived in Belarus for more than 30 years. In 2020, the man went to protests and served 13 months in a temporary detention center before being evacuated to Vilnius with the help of the BYSOL team. Roberto needs funds for living while he awaits a decision from the Lithuanian Department of Migration.
