The summer in Belarus plays tricks with the weather being very unpredictable, but it doesn’t stop people from Ireland coming to see the children in our orphanages. Gorodische orphanage is very popular this summer and welcomes groups of volunteers changing one another. But today this piece of news is not about them, we will tell their fabulous stories a bit later.
Today we are going to tell you about two guys that are doing an incredible work with the children and the equipment both in Cherven children’s orphanage and in the families.
These lads are our most dedicated volunteers. They are permanently involved into the Burren Chernobyl Project medical programme and visit Cherven and the community at least once a year.
This time lads came for 12 days to do major job on the complex sitting systems for the most disabled children in Cherven orphanage and some of the community cases.
The lads did a few trips to Minsk to put in place a chair for a beautiful little girl Angelina. They had been working on this chair for about a year and were delighted with good results. We hope that this chair will be of a great help to the parents and a big change in the child’s life!
Some of the days were really busy with travels to Borisov to see Kolya, to village Hutor to see Andrei, Beresino to visit Vitya. And sure there was plenty of work in the orphanage itself. Late hours and hard work wore off our lads but as they always say it’s never enough. Never enough time to do everything and to see everyone they want.
But we are very happy and proud to have such fantastic volunteers and assist them in every way we can. Thank you so much for those two great weeks that we had with you.
Can’t wait to see you again soon!
