The Children of Chernobyl...
Who are the “Children of Chernobyl”?
They are children who live in the radioactive zones of Belarus and still breathe in air that has been contaminated, they eat from a contaminated food chain and live in appalling conditions of deprivation and poverty following the major catastrophic disaster in Chernobyl on the 26th April 1986
A local group of Friends of Chernobyl's Children from Helpston, host about 23 of Chernobyl's children between the ages of 8 to 11, in their homes, for a month in July, for respite from the contamination when it's at its worst. It is a very moving and charitable act and the host families fully embrace the experience. It costs each participant a significant amount of time and money, which provides its own rewards in abundance.
