Our People

Our Donors and Supporters

The work of Chernobyl Children’s Project (UK) would not be possible without support from the people who attend our events, our individual donors, our corporate donors, our local groups who host children and the many businesses, church groups, rotary clubs, Quakers, Peace groups and other bodies who continue to make a special effort to ensure the children of Belarus are not forgotten.

Godel Technologies

Since the beginning of 2015 this Manchester and Minsk based company has been giving us regular support to help fund Rodni Kut and our Home Hospice Team in Gomel. They have also been sponsoring the purchase of computers for special schools and institutions in Gomel Region, sometimes giving children and young people access to computers for the first time in their lives.

We are overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity offered by the owners of Godel Technologies. Thank-you!

The Persula Foundation

In 2010 the Persula Foundation responded to an initial enquiry from CCP and became interested in our work with young disabled people living in institutions in Belarus. We received a grant to fund a Sanatorium holiday for people from Duyanovka institution in a clean part of Belarus. Each year since then, they have continued their support with further grants for young people’s holidays.

We are extremely grateful to the Persula Foundation for their support and interest in our work.

The BEARR Trust

In 2014 The BEARR Trust gave us a grant to fund a project aimed at supporting struggling families and keeping children out of the Custodial Schools in Gomel Region. Then in 2017 we received a further grant for them to support children with mental health problems, or those on the autistic spectrum. The children and their parents received support from psychologists and psychotherapists in the community, helping to make sure they are not referred to the Psychiatric Hospital. Read all about the project on pages 10 and 11 of the BEARR Newsletter No.72.

Action For Disability

‘Action for Disability’ was set up by Dr. Tom Fryers to facilitate projects for people with disabilities in Africa. But since 2013 the Trust has also been giving a generous donation to CCP every year to support our projects in Gomel Region.

With grateful thanks also to the following organisations:

The Toy Trust
The Chalk Cliff Trust
The Ryklow Charitable Trust
The Dischma Trust
The GilChrist Educational Trust
