CCP is monitoring the dreadful situation that is unfolding in Ukraine. We are pleased to report that, so far, our important work in Belarus is continuing as usual. We are still running our two family type homes for young people with disabilities; funding some of the work of the Home Palliative Care Team, for children in Gomel Region; supporting Foster Care Families in and around Gomel; helping the children’s cancer charity in Minsk to support children in the Cancer Hospital and those in remission; and providing some extra care in some of the institutions for young people with disabilities.
Banking sanctions now mean that we are currently unable to transfer further funds to our partners in Belarus but we have sufficient funds there already to cover our work until the Autumn.
We sincerely hope that the sanctions will be a temporary situation and that, in time, we will be able to resume transfers of funding. We hope you will continue to support us in these very difficult circumstances but will understand if you decide to reconsider your donation/purchase. We will keep you informed of developments in this respect via our website.
Not only are we striving hard to make the lives of those kids and young adults living in institutions happier and more fulfilled but, through an intense programme of education and training, we are fighting hard to encourage the authorities to provide better care in the community so that as many people as possible can live as independently as possible in family type environments. But all this costs money and we desperately need your help.

Our mission is to help those in Belarus whose lives continue to be blighted by the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster – babies born with genetic disorders and children with cancer or disabilities. We also seek to provide social and educational opportunities for children with disabilities and to move children and young people out of institutions.
