Camp for Children of Chernobyl, Italy, Italian Relief Corps (CISOM)

In its sixth year, this camp organised by CISOM will provide around 15 Belarusian children, affected by the Chernobyl disaster, with a chance to travel to Italy for 30 days and escape the effects of radiation, which are unfortunately still very active in their region. The aim is to provide support through a combination of outdoor activities, and a healthy diet. CISOM volunteers organise a range of recreational, cultural, and sporting activities as well as Italian language courses. The children also receive health checks in order to assess any damage from their exposure to radiation. The project operates in Tuscany, Italy, and the grant covers their general expenses such as travel and medical equipment.
