Amazing people

The holidays that we provide for children living with the legacy of Chernobyl are quite simply magical, but these life-changing breaks would not be possible without the help of many amazing local people.

Host families and volunteers

host-familiesLast but by no means least, we rely upon the support and benevolence of our wonderful host families who provide each of the children on our program with a loving home, lots of TLC and much, much, much more. Our host families are all volunteers and give selflessly to ensure that all the children we help are safe and secure, clean and warm, happy and well fed. They give up their homes, their time and above all their love to give each child the experience of a lifetime.

The charity is totally self-funded and is run entirely by volunteers. Without the help of these people, the kids’ holidays would simply not be possible.  This small but dedicated team do everything including raising funds, planning the children’s visits, managing the day to day affairs of the charity, organising and running the daily activities program, arranging healthcare appointments, transporting the children and lots more besides.We thank you all for making a world of difference to our lovely kids!
