Situated in a large town in the Brest region of southern Belarus, Luninets Social Orphanage is a halfway house for abandoned, neglected and orphaned children. The halfway house is well run and the children are well cared for by the dedicated staff. The Sunflower Chernobyl Appeal take children from Luninets Social Orphanage to Ireland every summer for recuperative breaks and decided to finance the refurbishment of the Centre, which consists of three buildings. All the floors were replaced and the toilet-washing areas were replaced and refurbished. Our charity recently re-roofed the social Orphanage and purchased some furniture and medical equipment. The Centre is now a comfortable, safe haven for the children. We receive requests from time to time for medicines, vitamins, clothing and to finance medical treatment for the children.

We continue to support Luninets Social Orphanage and to take children out on holidays to Ireland. Sadly many of these children end up in state institutions for the rest of their lives, but many host parents keep in contact with them and help them in many ways. At least they know they have someone who cares and they are not forgotten. This is a very worthwhile project for which we are grateful for any support we get. Below are some photos of the children and photos of some of the work carried out at Luninets Social Orphanage by The Sunflowers Chernobyl Appeal.

Above L to R; This photo shows a little boy who was dropped off by someone outside the social Orphanage while The Sunflowers volunteers were visiting the children. He is just one of many such children who, through no fault of their own, end up at the Orphanage. The middle photo shows Zhenya who was 3 year old when he arrived at the Orphanage. Zhenya is one of the lucky ones because he has been fostered by a loving Belarussian family with the help and support of The Sunflower Chernobyl Appeal. The children's dining room was in a poor state. Now the children can enjoy their breakfast in a cleaner and brighter room.

Sunflowers chairperson Pat Dillon is a regular visitor to the orphanage, delivering medicine, new clothing, bed linen, tolietries and other essentials for the abandoned children. For these little children the future is uncertain. They don't understand why they are here. For now this is their home. The Sunflowers help as much as possible to make their lives better. Your ongoing help and genorosity will ensure that the children of Luninets Social Orphanage will not be forgotten.
