Welcome to Friends of Chernobyl’s Children (FOCC) – Medway!
Our aim is to support children from disadvantaged social backgrounds in areas of Belarus that continue to be affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. We do this by bringing a group of 16 children to the UK each summer for a recuperative visit of four weeks.
However, as you will have seen on the news, the situation there prevents us from doing this.
At our AGM in March 2022, we announced that we be focusing our resources on to the support of families with children from Ukraine who have been affected by the war taking place. Our charity’s objects allow us to do this and so we will be working with recognised charities that have a children focus operating in the Ukraine.
Once the children are allowed back to the UK our focus will return on giving them a great holiday here in the UK.
