Mission

Chernobyl Children?s Project International Inc., provides humanitarian and medical aid to families and communities who continue to recover from the Chernobyl disaster of 1986. When dealing with the aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster, we must address a complex interplay of medical, social, economic and environmental factors, and emphasize self-sufficiency. 
 Our largely volunteer organization works in partnership with the people of Belarus and Ukraine to help them overcome the domino effect of poverty, poor health, and social, and psychosocial impact that continues to plague so many more than 20 years after the accident. Our work with the children of Belarus was featured in HBO's Academy-Award winning film, Chernobyl Heart. In 2006, we were awarded "Special Congressional Recognition" for "outstanding humanitarian work to aid children affected by the Chernobyl catastrophe," and were featured in PEOPLE Magazine, and on CNN and the "CBS Early Morning Show." We are a United Nations-recognized NGO, and we are the sister organization of Chernobyl Children?s Project International of Ireland.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

* Lifesaving children?s heart operations: Your donations have saved the lives of hundred of children suffering from a marked increase in cardiac birth defects since the Chernobyl disaster. American surgical teams travel to the Belarus to save lives and train local physicians. Your support will allow us to expand this successful program to Ukraine in 2008. * Recuperation camps and programs for the most needy children: Over 12,000 children from contaminated regions have spent summer and winter holidays with families in Ireland. CCPI has hosted many others in camps in their home country of Belarus . . . including children recovering from heart operations and cancer, and seriously disabled children on their first trips away from orphanages. * Nursing and therapeutic training programs: Volunteer nurses and physical/occupational/speech-language therapists travel to Chernobyl affected regions to work directly with children in understaffed institutions and provide much needed training to their local counterparts. * Community centers and programs: Targeting the most underserved and at risk communities that have the most motivated and committed local leadership, we build community centers that serve a wide variety of needs . . . day care for working parents, therapeutic services for disabled children, child care classes, vocational training and employment services, after school and homework help, computer centers, and more. We have completed these centers in the Belarusian communities of Zhytkovichi and Petrikov, and will follow with centers in Buda Kashaleva and Glutsk, with a goal of building 3 centers per year. * Foster Homes and at-home care for disabled children: CCPI is committed to programs that offer families alternatives to institutionalizing their children and allow children to be raised in loving homes of their own. Today, we support 14 foster families raising children who previously lived in orphanages. Another program has taken seriously disabled children off waiting lists for orphanages by managing home-help services and training for their families.
