The Belarussian KGB / Government hunts every real humanitarian NGO and tries to criminalize them. This is very easy, since all TV and Radio Channels are in the hand of the Dictatorship of Belarus. When they achieved the goal to close an NGO, they re-open it, under the same name. So, NGOs (Non Government Organisations) become GNGOs (Governmental Non Government Organisations). This happens all the time, sometimes without international partners knowing it.
