Can you help us to support the forgotten children of Chernobyl?


  • 2016 marked the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. 
  • This disaster shook the world and left a legacy of distress, hardship and illness that continues today.
  • We are a local charity that aims to relieve the suffering of disadvantaged Belarusian children affected by the consequences of the environmental and social changes from the Chernobyl nuclear accident. 
  • The world appears to have forgotten these children and the difficulties they face everyday. 
  • We are hoping you will help them by giving us your support in any way you can.  This can be a financial donation, warm clothing or some simple volunteering once a month to support our activities.


2019 will be the 12th year we welcome children from the Chernobyl region to Surrey. The children are aged between 7 and 12 years old.  They will be with us for their month of respite from Sunday 16th June until Sunday 14th July 2019. 


Could you open your home and your hearts to one of our children? 

Are you a family willing to look after one of our children and treat them as your own for a month?  The children follow our plan of activities between school hours, returning to you at the end of the day.  Weekends are your own for the child to join in with your family life.  All you need is a spare bed or room and an open heart.  It's a great experience for all family members.  Ideally, families will be in or around the Woking area for drop off and collection from Pyrford.  Please get in touch if you'd like to volunteer or find out more.

If you're not able to host a child, there are lots of other ways you can become involved.  Please contact us!
