Charity description

Friends of Chernobyl's Children - Maghull and Ormskirk logo
Every June, FOCC Maghull & Ormskirk bring around 16 children from affected parts of Belarus to the UK for a four-week programme aimed at giving them a healthy and happy future, with respite from the high radiation levels that still gravely afflict the area 31 years after the devastating Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

These children are in great need and come from social situations that make it difficult for them to get the care they require at home.

Not only does the visit provide them with a month of love and recovery, but it also offers them amazing experiences which
remain with them for the rest of their lives.

Those involved with FOCC work on a voluntary basis. They dedicate their own time and money to give the children an amazing, fun experience in the UK, along with vital recuperation time and medical, optical and dental checks.

Please donate to support our cause! Every penny goes towards supporting our FOCC Maghull and Ormskirk Group children and ensures we are able to bring them to the UK for 4 weeks of respite from the high levels of radiation they face back home in Belarus.

Charity No: 1084527
