Friends of Chernobyl's Children Charter:
To relieve the suffering of children affected by the radiation explosion from the nuclear
plant at Chernobyl.
Provide family placements for children/orphans from the Mogilev region for at least one month
each year and to meet the full costs of these visits, which will include optical, dental and health checks as well
as lots of tender loving care.

By extensive fund-raising the FOCC can meet the full costs of all the visits without additional
contribution from the host families. FOCC is completely self-funding; everyone giving of their time and talents
freely, thus ensuring that ALL money raised is utilised for the children.
From that first little girl in 1994, FOCC has grown to the extent that in 1999 420 children
visited the UK for a month of recuperative care.
The number of children and families helped by the charity now stands at well over 1000 and that
number is growing.
