Host Children for holidays

hostOpen your home for a recuperative holiday for children from Chernobyl-affected and disadvantaged areas of Belarus. Hosting these amazing children can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life! To take a child out of a contaminated area even for a few weeks can boost their immune system and generally instil a sense of positivity, which can be lacking in many of their lives. The generosity of Irish families in hosting a visiting child from Belarus provides a boost to the health and spirits of not only the child, but also to their family, friends and their community. Visiting children are placed in pairs with families usually for a period of two or four weeks. The children’s average age is 10 and the youngest are 7 years old. Weekly activities are organised by our local group committees and translators are available at all times throughout the children’s stay. Contact us for further information.
