Chernobyl Friends.

Our young friends from Chernobyl arrived here on Sunday 25th .For 3 weeks holiday. 3 weeks away holiday away from their own radiated contaminated country reduces one years build up of radiation from their bodies – effectively giving them an extra years health .We thank all thoes involved in helping us raise the funds needed for this venture .

Any excess funds go to Debby Deegans " To Russia With Love" charity which looks after 170 orphans children in Hortolova Orphanage – an area not too far from Chernobyl. Irish nurses and carers help look after these children who need all the help they can get.
