About this cause

About our cause

Friends of Chernobyl's Children Edinburgh West is an independent charity set up to help to relieve the suffering of children affected by the radiation explosion from the Nuclear Plant at Chernobyl. We provide family placements for disadvantaged children/orphans from the Mogilev region for at least one month each year and meet the full costs of these visits which include optical, dental and health checks and lots of tender loving care. Edinburgh West was started in May 2006 and we brought 9 girls and 6 boys (all aged 7 and 8 years) to Scotland for their first visit in September 2006. Last year we launched our second group based in West Lothian and in total we enjoyed the company of 42 children and four interpreters in Scotland. The children benefit from our involvement in many ways, not the least being a measurable increase in their immune systems following a stay with us in the UK. As a small independent charity we can guarantee that all funds are used for the children and their families. None of the volunteers are paid, all give their talents and time freely. Please, help us to help these children whilst enjoying shopping on line. Many many thanks.
