The chance of a few weeks in a clean and healthy environment, away from the contamination in their normal surroundings, provides a great boost for the immune systems of children and teenagers in remission from cancer. Every year CCP UK brings groups of children, younger ones with their mums too, and teenagers to stay with host families in the UK. All manner of fun activities are organised for the kids to enjoy during their stay including trips to local attractions, theme parks, the beach and even London. In addition to the physical health benefits, the chance to enjoy fun and excitement with other kids provides a huge psychological boost too. The children return to Belarus with memories of a holiday that they will never forget. Very often, new lifelong friendships are formed too.
£20 would cover the costs of one day of happy, healthy holiday
£100 would pay for the visa for the UK
£250 would pay for an air fare
£500 (plus Gift Aid) would pay for a complete holiday
Anything at all that you can donate, however, small, will go towards making a big difference to the recovery and well being of a child recovering from cancer.
