In November last year, I watched a documentary called 'Finding Banni' on RTE one. It featured the story of a little Belarusian boy with special needs. It broke my heart, made me furious and then seriously re-evaluate my life. I contacted the Burren Chernobyl Project, the voluntary Irish charity involved in Banni's Orphanage (Gorodische), to see how I could be useful.
I am learning Russian as fast as I can and embark on my first trip to Belarus with BCP in about 6 weeks. I am not looking for money to pay for the trip. I would like to raise some money to be spent directly on the children and young adults. Every cent raised will go straight to their specific needs at that time; whether it is nappies or medicine, bubbles or marshmallows, the cause is more than worthy. If you are in the position to contribute anything I would really appreciate it. Every little bit counts!
