Twenty Belarusian children, from areas affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, are given the chance to come to Italy for a month to escape the effects of radiation, receive healthy food and take part in outdoor activities. The camps get children away from their contaminated homes, which are still affected by radiation. In the Italian countryside, volunteers from the Italian Relief Corps organise a range of recreational, cultural, and sporting activities as well as Italian language courses. The children socialise together and form strong friendships in a loving atmosphere. The children also receive health checks in order to assess any damage from their exposure to radiation.
With the support of the Fund, twenty disadvantaged Italian children were also able to attend and join the hiking, sports and cultural excursions.
