Could you make a difference to the life of a Chernobyl Child?March 2nd, 2015
Two weeks from you could give two years to these children
Can you remember the Chernobyl disaster back in April 1986? The population of Belarus can never forget.
Their people will be forever affected by the legacy of the world worst nuclear disaster – the radioactive fallout was nearly 400 times greater than the bombs dropped in 1945 on Hiroshima & Nagasaki combined. The World Health Organisation has classified 500,000 of the children in Belarus as being “at risk”.
The Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline charity was founded by Victor Mizzi M.B.E. in 1991. Building on his example, we are bringing a group of 16 children from Belarus this summer for a month’s respite care.
It is estimated that a month staying with families here, eating nourishing food, away from the relentless radiation and breathing clean air can add up to two years to their life expectancy.
Could you share your home with two 11 year old children for two weeks? There is a network of support for host families -you would not be on your own. The children will take part in lots of activities that we have organised on their behalf. These activities range from sports to the arts, from local visits to coach trips to the sea or countryside. There will be two interpreters with the group and they are on hand around the clock should there be any language difficulties or for general advice and assistance.
If you think that you can help us to help these most unfortunate children please call Andy March: 07812 159942, or visit our web site at www.ccll.org.uk/bristol to find out more, or visit the Gallery so that you can see all the fun and activities from previous summers.Back to news
