Last week we saw another batch of delightful children from Chernobyl Children’s Life Line Charity. We were so impressed with how well behaved they all were, even when a few of them were a little nervous. We tried to make visiting the dentist as much fun as possible for them.
Chernobyl Children’s Life Line – Malvern and District Link, is a charity which arranges health boosting holidays for children living in the area affected by the Chernobyl nuclear explosion in 1986.
Doctors in some of the cancer hospitals in Belarus believe that the children returning from respite breaks have their life expectancy extended by up to two years. This is because their immune systems have the chance to recover as a result of the ‘clean’ food and the lack of heavy background radiation in this country. Many of the children keep in touch with their host families and return for visits.
