Adi Roche  when she  welcomed the group of 39 children with special needs – many of whom have come from turbulent backgrounds – flew into Dublin today from the Chernobyl region of Belarus to Ireland for the best Christmas holiday of their lives.

The children, some orphaned, some abandoned by parents who were unable to cope with their illnesses and disabilities, live in a remote region of Belarus that is heavily affected by the fallout of the Chernobyl disaster of 1986.

 

Many of these children reside in Vesnova Children’s Mental Asylum, an orphanage which was hidden in a veil of secrecy during the years of the Soviet Union. It was discovered by Irish volunteers working with Adi Roche’s Chernobyl Children International charity in the early 1990’s. Since then it has been transformed into a world class child care centre and each year scores of its residents come to Ireland for Christmas and summer rest and recuperation holidays.

 

CCI Founder and Voluntary CEO, Adi Roche  welcomed the latest group of highly excited children into Dublin Airport  where they met by the Irish host families with whom they will spend their Christmas holidays.  They arrived shortly after at 14.35 following a very early start and a long journey from Belarus to Ireland, via Lithuania.


Voluntary CEO of CCI Adi Roche said, “The Irish people have been reaching out to these children for thirty years and not only has their enthusiasm and kindness never wavered, it actually grows every year. This year is particularly poignant as we have been reminiscing, throughout this 30th Anniversary year, about the children who have crossed our paths…many of whom aren’t with us anymore. The care and affection given by Irish families to these children helps their physical health, mental health and their emotional and cognitive development.  What they provide is truly priceless!”

 

“For many of these children, nothing as magical as this will ever have happened in their l
