Rest and Recuperation for Children Exposed to Nuclear Fallout
For 20 years, volunteer host families throughout Ireland have given more than 24,500 children living in the region exposed to continued radiation from the nuclear fallout of Chernobyl the opportunity to enjoy a holiday away from the debilitating environment in which they live. Being able to escape a radioactive, highly toxic environment for just a few weeks extends each child’s life significantly, and reduces their contamination levels by 30 to 50 percent. Just as important, your gift ensures that these children return to their communities with the comforting knowledge that the outside world has not forgotten about them.
