Chernobyl Children Lifeline - Can You Help?

Chernobyl Children Lifeline – helping children for 15 years

Host families wanted

Scottish Borders link of Chernobyl Children lifeline was founded in 2001 and over the past 15 years, the charity has given over 100 children a month’s health break to build up their immune systems to combat the nuclear radioactivity present in their own home country.

The children stay with host families for two or four weeks; over the years these families have represented the entire Border region, from Peebles to Eyemouth, Stow to Jedburgh, and even into Northumberland. The charity is planning a visit for 2016, but to do this, it needs to find one or two more host families to join the team.

Looking after the children can be very rewarding and anyone interested is invited to contact Fraser Simm, Chairman, on 01578-730297
