The book tells Ira’s moving story – some of it in her own words and some told by her teachers and carers – interwoven with information about the Chernobyl accident and its health and environmental effects. It also describes some of the activities of CCP(UK) and other charities and suggests ways in which readers might give their support.
It is primarily aimed at school children of 10 – 13 years, and we hope that all our groups will help to promote it in their local schools. However it makes a good read for anyone who is interested in getting a better picture of life in Belarus in the wake of Chernobyl. For photos of Ira, click here.
