OUR PROJECTS

Chernobyl Children’s Visits To Ireland - Rest And Recuperation

The Sunflowers bring Belarussian Children from the contaminated areas of Belarus to Ireland every summer for one month of rest and recuperation. They stay with volunteer host families for two or four weeks. It gives them a chance to breathe clean air, eat good food and drink clean water. This has a very positive effect on their general health, boosting thier immune systems. If you would like to host children, please contact Pat Dillon on 087-417 2307
