Local families needed to host Chernobyl children

January 25, 2011

By Administrator

The 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster is April 26. More than 750,000 children are still living in the most contaminated areas.

For the Children of the World provides health, respite and rest for these children by providing some basic medical and dental care and a chance to replenish their system in a clean environment which includes healthy food. Time spent away from the radiation allows their bodies to flush out contaminants so their immune system can rebuild and fight the effects when they return home.

This year, 20 children are looking for host families in the U.S. from June 14 – July 26. If interested in hosting a child (or sharing host responsibilities), contact Janet Hlavaty-LaPosa at 206-953-2279 or go to www.ftcotw.org.
