Children from Chernobyl Visit LOPC


Saturday 17th September 2011 saw a group of 10 young people from Chernobyl visited the Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre. They came from social situations where it is difficult to get the care and attention they require. They arrived undernourished and shabby and stayed with Host Families for a month. It is believed that by being shown some love and attention, being well fed and experiencing a good life, they return to Belarus with hope and the possibility of extending their lives by some 5 years.
