How You Can Help
Become a Host Family
The people of Belarus are in need of your help to give their children a vision of a brighter future.
There may be little or nothing you can do about the future safety of the nuclear industry, but by having a child
from Belarus in your home for a month, by allowing them to breathe clean air, eating fresh wholesome food, and

The Friends of Chernobyl's Children is effective in working with the people of Belarus, regularly visiting the
country to negotiate with politicians and officials and visiting doctors, childcare
officers and teachers. The message is loud and clear - we must provide children with an escape from this sad
and depressing environment and enable them to benefit from a stay with us in the United Kingdom.
As a small independent charity we can guarantee that all funds are used for the stated purposes. None of the
workers are paid, all give freely of their time and talents. The volunteer families who offer their homes for one
month do so without any recompense.
In order to continue with our work we desperately need to raise money. The air fares for the children are rising
each year and it costs hundreds of pounds to bring each child to the UK. If you want to get involved in your area,
either in a fund raising capacity or as a host family then please contact us.
Please note that all host families are thoroughly vetted prior to acceptance and will have the full support and
guidance from the charity throughout the visits.
