Families urged to help children of Chernobyl
A BRISTOL charity is appealing for families willing to share their home with Belarusian children affected by the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.
The Bristol link of the Chernobyl Children's Life Line charity hosts around 20 children for a four-week visit to the UK every year.
Belarus took the brunt of the catastrophe, with 70 percent of the radioactive fallout from the nuclear plant falling on the country.
The charity provides them with a break from the constant radiation they are bombarded with at home. Doctors estimate it can increase their life expectancy by around two years.

The children, who come from the the town of Osipovichi and surrounding villages, are given four weeks of fresh air, uncontaminated food, fun, love and attention as well as dental and eye check-ups.
This year the charity hopes to bring 18 children over from Belarus between July 14 and August 11.
Currently they are looking for three or four more host families who are happy to look after two 11-year-olds for a period of two weeks ideally during the second half of the children's stay.
As well as raising money to bring children over to the UK the charity, founded in 1992, supports a school in Protachavici where the children help to grow the vegetables for the canteen and collect scrap metal to sell for learning resources and fund respite camps in Belarus for the children and families who are too ill to travel.
