Chernobyl Children’s Trust is a non-denominational, non-political, humanitarian organisation. We work in partnership with community-based Belarusian organisations to carry out our programmes. These include bringing children to Ireland for recouperation holidays and the operation of essential programmes in Belarus for the advocacy and support for disabilities, poverty and sickness, the promotion of health and community development for marginalised children and their families, across disadvantaged areas of Belarus.
Volunteers: The ‘Trust’ is an entirely voluntary organisation and this enables maximum donor value by directing funds to exactly where they are most needed. We believe in a partnership approach, working as equals with Belarusian agencies and organisations to implement programmes. Indeed, one of our key strengths is our extensive network of local organizations and contacts on the ground throughout Belarus enabling the most appropriate programmes to be undertaken always. We believe in the power of volunteerism and place a high regard on those who give freely of their time for the betterment of others and we firmly believe in the ability of committed volunteers to achieve outstanding results!
