Our First 25 Years

This year Chernobyl Children’s Project celebrates our 25th Anniversary. Our launch event took place at a Lord Mayor’s Reception in Manchester Town Hall in 1995. Within 3 months we had delivered our first reconditioned ambulance to Belarus, in July we brought our first group of children for a holiday to Glossop and Littleborough and by the Autumn we were able to fill a forty foot trailer with aid and deliver this to Belarus. Our aid and holiday programmes soon grew and we have hosted well over 5,000 children for 4 week recuperative holidays and delivered hundreds of lorry loads of humanitarian aid to Belarus. Read about all our efforts and achievements in our very special newsletter – Our First 25 years
