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


  • We are a local charity that aims to relieve the suffering of disadvantaged Belarusian children affected by the consequences of both environmental and social changes from the Chernobyl nuclear accident of 1986. 
  • 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.
  • 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 could be a financial, or a donation of warm clothing or some simple volunteering once a month to support our activities.


**Sadly, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the children are unable to travel in 2020, which would have been the 13th year for our Woking Group to bring children to Surrey.  We look forward now to 2021, when we plan to bring a group of 12 children, aged between 7 and 12 years old, to stay with local families for a month of respite care.**


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.
