Chernobyl Children’s Project (UK) supports children, families and young people in Belarus, the country worst affected by the 1986 Nuclear Disaster.
Every summer we provide month long recuperative holidays in the UK for children from Belarus. For children who cannot come to the UK, we send volunteers out to support a holiday at a holiday camp in a clean part of Belarus in July and August.
During the last fourteen years we have had a major training programme which has helped to reduce the numbers of children in the orphanages and to prepare suitable local foster families.
Much of our work focuses on improving the educational and social opportunities for children and young people with disabilities. We fund extra staff at Zhuravichi Orphanage, have set up small family homes for children, Rodni Kut, and young adults, Family Home 2000 and established the first respite care facility in Belarus And we are promoting integration of children with physical disabilities into schools.
