Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Friends of Chernobyls Children West Lothian bring groups of children, aged 7-12, to West Lothian from some of the areas worst affected by the Chernobyl Disaster.

Most of the children come from the villages of the Cherikov area of Belarus. They live in wooden houses with no running water and an outside toilet. Not much fun when there is snow on the ground for 5 months of the year and temperatures get as low as -35C.

The children come here for a month of love and care, each year for up to 5 years and live with host families in West Lothian. We put on a full programme of fun activities for the children throughout the month as well as getting them optical, dental and medical treatment.

They love to play in the fresh Scottish air, eat our great food and feel the love of their own Scottish family. They sometimes think that the world has forgotten about their situation. With your help and donations we will not forget about them and they will leave us after one month knowing that the people of West Lothian love them and care about them.

Please help us by making a donation. We are all volunteers. Nobody in our charity in the UK is paid and all of the money raised goes towards our work with the children and providing for them.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
