Working with Other Charities
Chernobyl Children’s Project (UK) took part in the launch meeting of the European Chernobyl Network in Germany in November 2010. This meeting was hosted by IBB, a German organisation which has many educational and social projects in Belarus. Taking part were charities from Spain, Holland, Austria, France, Ireland and UK as well as a number of German organisations.
This is the Mission Statement of the Network:
The European Chernobyl Network is a platform of cooperation for like-minded organisations working on the Chernobyl issue. We welcome all organisations working to improve the lives of those living in the Chernobyl-affected regions to join us.
Working together,organisations can be stronger, more effective and can achieve real, sustainable, long-term change.
Our objectives are to:
For the 25th Anniversary of Chernobyl in 2011 charities across Europe staged candlelight vigils, held exhibitions and organised meetings at which liquidators spoke (liquidators are the people who were involved in fighting the fire at Chernobyl, mitigating the effects of the disaster and then cleaning up afterwards)
IBB continues to fund liquidators to travel to various European countries each April.
CCP(UK) Director Linda Walker is a member of the Co-ordination Committee for the European Chernobyl Network. Many more charities are now joining ECN and we hope that there will be opportunities for us to work together to support the people of Belarus.
