When the children go home, they have usually put on weight and have colour in their cheeks. Their suitcases are filled to bursting with warm clothes, shoes, toiletries, vitamin pills and other items. Their parents & guardians have told us of their gratitude to the Manx people for giving their child hope for the future.
Our help continues when the children return to Belarus. The Friends of Chernobyl's Children (Isle of Man) provides additional humanitarian aid for the children and their families in order to maintain the benefits of their visit throughout the year.
It has been proven that care of this nature substantially boosts the children's shattered immune systems and enables them to enjoy a healthier, fuller and longer life.
