News from Sergei Luschin


We were asking you to help Sergei Luschin back in January. His mother shared good news with us that the boy has improved since the trip to China: he can sit better, head control improved alot, Sergei started to pronounce some sounds, and the MRI test said that he was getting closer to nomral. Surely they were offered another course of rehab to go on with successful treatment.


Sergei was appointed to have another course on August 17, and the family was able to fundraise the required amount for the rehab on time, but in Belarusian rubles. Due to the growth of the dollar, it turned out that the family lost $ 3,000. So now they are asking all caring people to help gather the missing amount. The family is already in China, so we are in a hurry!


Please help this remarkable mother, who is trying to raise a son on her own!

Thank you so much!

We keep up with lovely stories

We are very happy… Happy that the children in our orphanages have a chance to welcome fantastic people from Ireland and not only.

A lovely girl from the UK, Jennifer McMahon, our regular volunteer for Cherven, shared with us her lovely memories about this summer trip:

 This visit was 6 years since my first trip to Cherven orphanage. I love travelling to Belarus and working with the children. Seeing the small improvements year on year makes it even better.

This year in Cherven, I joined forces with another regular volunteer, Ruth Byrne, and a group of nursing students from Chernobyl Children’s Trust. Between us, we spent time with as many of the children as possible.  We got the younger children out for supported walks in the sunshine, took the bed-bound children out in chairs, and put on lots of treats and activities for the full range of kids. This included a disco and cinema trip, a magician that came to Cherven and taking groups out for dinner and a picnic at the Lake.

Belarus has become a big part of my life and the children are always on my mind. Throughout the year I fundraise with friends and colleagues and have been really well supported with donations. This year I loved giving out clothes, donated by students and staff at a local secondary school, for a wedding we staged in the playground between Lilia and Andre – a long-term couple in the older groups. The young men and women were ever so pleased and proud in their shirts and dresses.

Getting to know the kids and their interests is a privilege. One evening I stumbled upon a group of the older boys watching the Dynamo Minsk V Salzberg match in the TV room. I enjoyed chatting football with them, even owning up to being a Chelsea supporter, and loved their reaction to the Dynamo Minsk goal – jumping up from their seats and high-fiving.

The most important thing to me is that we volunteers give care, attention, and a little love to the children, which, with the ratio of staff to children, the orphanage doesn’t have the resources to give. The extra treats and trips out are great, but the time spent with a child who otherwise would be sat in a wheelchair all-day, unstimulated, is invaluable. I am already missing Belarus and can’t help but begin to think about my next trip!

And we in the return thank Jennifer very much for all her help and attention. Looking forward to seeing you next year!

Good stories are never enough

We keep sharing amazing stories and memories of our fantastic Irish volunteers. This story comes from one of our most dedicated one – Maria Carr:

“This year marks my 9th year travelling to Belarus with the Burren Chernobyl project. I can honestly say that each year has gotten better, especially in 2010 when I was introduced to Cherven orphanage. My heart was split in two and can never visit one without going to the other.


I spent two weeks herewith a lot of my time in group 3 and 4 and group 2 in the evenings. I felt my connection with the children had solidified, I am a face to them that keeps returning. I was , as always in awe of each and every one of them. The smiles, the laughter and the jokes warmed my heart.

I was treated to concerts and even a salad making competition. It was a joy to spend my time in Goradischie and accompany them on outings away from the orphanage for the day.

Due to the large group in Gorodische for my second week I moved into the independent unit. I was treated like a queen and no need for an alarm clock as a knock to my door at 8 am to say “ privet” would do!!

A lasting memory I have is with Vitalik who lives in the independent unit. He can be seen as a tough man who plays sports and works hard, that is of course true but I was privileged to see his softer side. Every morning I would get a glass of juice to my room and every evening before I went to bed, he would come in and say goodnight to me. On the second last night he sat with me and was quiet. He said that he did not want me to go home, that my home was here now and I needed to stay. I held back the tears and gave him a huge hug, I felt helpless but I knew he understood. I left him with a present and a picture of us together in a frame.


I spent one week in Cherven and managed to visit all the groups with a few ice cream parties along the way in the 34degee heat!

I was also able to get 92 of us to the cinema and disco. It was great to see everyone out having fun and forgetting about the real world for a short time. I got a massive “spaseeba” and many hugs and kisses. A part of my heart remains with Tanya, it hurts more than is imaginable to say goodbye to her but I know we will spend time together again.

I had a great three weeks in Belarus. I don’t know how it happened but some Dublin jerseys appeared to have made their way over and are being worn proudly!!”

You are my friend forever

Another life changing experience in Gorodishche with thanks to the Burren Chernobyl project.                

John Mc Manus shares his story about his trip to Gorodische this year:


"This year I returned to Gorodishche orphanage for the second time. I must admit that I was slightly apprehensive to return this year having had such an amazing experience last year, I was unsure if this year could compare- I couldn’t have been more wrong. This years’ experience completely surpassed all of my expectations.  Myself and the other volunteers were overjoyed to see the children being stimulated and engaged with on a daily biases, to see them outside with the sun on their faces and being treated with care and kindness by some fresh faces in the orphanage. It was also fantastic to see our donations and resources from last year being put to great use.

This year we did a wide variety of things with the children which they, I and the rest of the volunteers truly enjoyed. On the first day of our trip, we visited each of the groups to reunite and reacquaint ourselves with the children. It is such an amazing feeling to see, hug, talk to, play with and spend time with old friends in Gorodishche and just as amazing to see the faces of new children and get to know them. One of my personal highlights of the trip was walking into group 5 and having beautiful Vika (who was previously in group 3) recognise me, run into my arms and squeeze me half to death with one of her loving hugs.

Group 3 is always a difficult one to visit, especially when some of the smiling faces from the previous year are no longer there. Tears were shed and memories recalled of those children before moving on to spending time with the ones that remained. Although they can be one of the saddest groups to visit, I find that group 3 and group 4 are the ones upon which one can have huge impact, even in the space of a week. We fed the children, gave them massages, brought them around the grounds in their wheelchairs and allowed the sun to shine down on their faces and the fresh air to fill their lungs. We also fed them yoghurts, played with them and gave them the one on one attention which they love and crave so much.

We also spent a lot of quality time with group 1. This group, which is primarily made up of young adults, loved being brought down to the gym where we played sports, danced and spent quality time with them. They also love to have their pictures taken and to take pictures of each other.  They were also fed nutritious yoghurts and enough sweets to last them a life time.

Every evening at seven we would take the older boys from group two outside to play some football. Although the five Irish volunteers never stood a chance against the thirteen young men who we faced, it was incredible fun for all involved. Once we had suffered a mortifying defeat (every evening), we would feed the boys sandwiches and sweets before going up to the other boys from group two who did not like to play football and give them the same and spend some time with them. On the last night of our trip, we cooked up all the food that we had left in the house, bought bottles of coke and sweets and fed all the group 2 boys a feast fit for a king.

The weather during this week was so amazing that we seized every opportunity that we could to take the children outside to let them enjoy the sun. We took the older girls from group 7 for a walk around the local village and took them for ice creams. We also walked to the graveyard where children of the orphanage are buried to pay our respects- a very sad experience but great to see that headstones had been bought with donations that we made last year so that the children’s graves are marked and they are remembered. We also made use of the fantastic weather by bringing the children on a day trip to a nearby town where we were given a tour, visited many sights and had a picnic in the forest. One of the boys said after the picnic that he had never eaten such wonderful food in all of his life which was  truly heart-warming to hear.

My personal favourite experience of the trip was walking down to a nearby lake with children from groups six and seven.  On  this day I was reunited with my best friend in Gorodishche- Andrei from group six. Such a pleasure to walk to the lake with him and help him learn English and try my very best (and fail) to learn Russian. Such an intelligent, kind, warm hearted, funny and inspiring boy who breaks my heart as he has so much potential and I know he would flourish and achieve in a mainstream school in Ireland. My heart broke even more when he asked if he could come back to Ireland with me and I had to say no (but I am hoping that this answer can change soon). We had a picnic with the children down by the lake but on this 37 degree day it was not long before myself (the biggest child of them all) and my partner in crime Andrei were in the lake splashing everyone. Soon everyone was soaking wet, laughing and having a great time.

The week doesn’t take long to slip by and before long you are left with just a few short hours to say goodbye to the most inspiring, resilient, loving, caring and amazing people you have ever met and ever will meet.  There is a lump in your throat and tears in your eyes from the moment you say your first goodbye, right up until you say your very last. Although saying goodbye to the children of Gorodishche is possibly the most difficult thing I have ever had to do, I would not trade my experience, my memories and the friends I have made there for the world.

To those of you who sponsored myself and my fellow volunteers- your generous donations have bought a veranda for group three (who are immobile and bedbound) so that they may get out and feel the sun on their faces and fresh air in their lungs as opposed to lying indoors all day. This veranda will be built within the next month. One of the ladies working in the orphanage commented that she was so happy that the needs of these children were finally being met.  We also put money towards building a drying room so that the children’s clothes and blankets can be washed and dried more easily during the winter and they can be changed more often. We bought tracksuits with elasticated waistbands which will encourage independent toileting and changing as buttons will not be an issue. We bought nutritious yogurts for the children, picnics, funded 2 day trips and bought presents such as watches, pencils and copies, teddies, etc. Thank you all for your donations. 

 I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the Burren Chernobyl Project for once again facilitating such a life changing experience, I would like to thank our driver Tamara for getting us from A to B, I would like to thank our amazing, inspiring interrupter Irina who has such a loving, caring nature towards each child- I am in complete awe of her, and finally, I would like to thank the children of Gorodishche orphanage for being such resilient, brave, kind, caring, loving and amazing children. I have such respect for each and every one of you and cannot wait until next year when I can relive this experience with you all over again. But until then:

 "ты мой друг навсегда"- “You are my friend forever”

Lovely memories about the summer

It is always our pleasure to listen to our volunteers' stories about their time spent in the orphanages. Every summer they have something new in store and always they are lovely memories. 

Rosaleen Byrne shared her ones about July 2015 trip to Gorodische children's orphanage: 

"I have just returned from a wonderful 3 week trip to Gorodishche orphanage. It’s such a privilege to be able to visit these beautiful children and young adults who welcome us with open arms.

Over the 3 weeks we took part in a variety of activities and trips.

We walked to the local library with “group 6” children, hand in hand enjoying the company and smiling faces – language is no barrier. Two of our children Andrei  and Natasha read for us in the library. Afterwards we had ice cream and chilled out in the grounds of the local school. On our return home we walked past the church and graveyard we, the volunteers, were struck by the respect and reverence shown by the children.

We also made 2 separate trips to Baranovichi taking groups of 20 children/young adults 1st group made up from Group 1,5 & 6. The second group from 2,6,7 and independent living. Most of the second group all have jobs and work hard, rarely getting a day off to be treated.

We visited the fun fair & arcade followed by lunch and then ice cream in the park, lots of fun and happy faces all round.

During our stay we bought yogurts and we gave these out daily to groups of children. Yogurt is always a very welcome tasty and nutritious treat loved by all.

We were lucky to be able to join in the celebrations for “Ivans Day” which consisted of games, dancing and the older girls making floral head pieces with some help. Fortunately we had lovely weather for this and were able to take lots of children outside to the football pitch area for fun and excitement.

Other activities we organized were discos both indoor and out door depending on weather, face painting and simple ball games. Everyone who had a birthday during our stay had it marked and celebrated with their friends. We volunteers just love the tradition of birthday wishes and the honesty with which they express them. We also helped  feed the children in group 3.

Of course I can’t forget to tell you about our evening football with the big boys who generally work all day. This was always looked forward to by them and some times the volunteers!! I can only speak for myself and say I have no football skills so quite often resorted to some very unsporting behavior! But all in all great fun was had and it was followed by bread and jam and juice! If weather did not permit us to play football, we would visit the boys in their group- playing cards, colouring, dancing/ listening to music and just hanging out, they just love company. Sometimes it’s enough to sit and hold a hand or listen to someone chat even if you understand very little.

In between the above activities we worked in groups with children less mobile and or confined to beds & cots. Getting them out to the nearby room or even outside going for walks massaging those little limbs, or just sitting blow some bubbles (always a big hit!)

The one striking thing about these children is they are almost always smiling even if their day is spent in bed or restrained in a wheelchair as is often the case. In one group quite a number have to crawl along the floor to get from A to B still smiling. If they can find something to smile about why can’t we!

Thank you to Burren Chernobyl Project, Dobra Tut and especially Irina and Tamara for their endless patience and support. Also a big thank you to our families, friends and community without their support we could not travel and help the children."

And we in our turn thank all the volunteers of this group for coming back to our children to make a difference and lovely memories!

Wheelchair profis

The summer in Belarus plays tricks with the weather being very unpredictable, but it doesn’t stop people from Ireland coming to see the children in our orphanages. Gorodische orphanage is very popular this summer and welcomes groups of volunteers changing one another. But today this piece of news is not about them, we will tell their fabulous stories a bit later.

Today we are going to tell you about two guys that are doing an incredible work with the children and the equipment both in Cherven children’s orphanage and in the families.

These lads are our most dedicated volunteers. They are permanently involved into the Burren Chernobyl Project medical programme and visit Cherven and the community at least once a year.

This time lads came for 12 days to do major job on the complex sitting systems for the most disabled children in Cherven orphanage and some of the community cases.

The lads did a few trips to Minsk to put in place a chair for a beautiful little girl Angelina. They had been working on this chair for about a year and were delighted with good results. We hope that this chair will be of a great help to the parents and a big change in the child’s life!

Some of the days were really busy with travels to Borisov to see Kolya, to village Hutor to see Andrei, Beresino to visit Vitya. And sure there was plenty of work in the orphanage itself. Late hours and hard work wore off our lads but as they always say it’s never enough. Never enough time to do everything  and to see everyone they want.

But we are very happy and proud to have such fantastic volunteers and assist them in every way we can. Thank you so much for those two great weeks that we had with you.

Can’t wait to see you again soon!

Wonderful holidays in Minsk

We welcome again the children from Gorodische children’s orphanage. This became an amazing tradition of Burren Chernobyl Project to take the children to Minsk and organize unforgettable holidays for them.

It seemed that everything had to go its usual way, as everything was set up, repeated many times, but no – there are always funny moments, too much emotions and tears of course.

In this group there were six children and a teacher, that were accompanied by Irish volunteers Maria and Julia, and Liam.

We wanted to have a really entertaining week, so that the children would remember it a long time, as their world is restricted by the walls of the orphanage and they hardly have a chance to leave it for such a long time and a long distance, some of the children never leave the place.

And I believe we managed. There were trips to the circus, Zoo, the amusement park, we invited a clown, bubble show, celebrated Lida’s birthday.

She has already been on holidays in Minsk before, but now she turned into a beautiful young girl of 16 and became more reasonable and independent. Sometimes she was giving Nikita a lesson of good behavior using so called “pedagogical advice”.

Nikita is a pure Angel (smiley and cheerful). He seemed as the quietness itself but overwhelming attention did its work – where else can you mess around?! It was “fun” for everyone – Liam, Maria, Julia, Irina and even myself.

The children were selected from different groups but all of them were friends – older boys were helping Lida and Nikita as they were in the wheelchairs.

It was probably the first time ever that Oksana has been out from the orphanage and so far away: you could tell how excited she was by the smile on her toothless mouth.

In a few words we were all singing and messing and having parties and rest – the week flew as though never happened. We didn’t notice the time at all!

And here came Saturday. Before children’s departure we went to see the aircrafts to the airport. Oksana was dragging her bag with belongings looking like about to cry – she thought it was time to leave. Yes the departure day is the saddest one, always comes with tears. For all the time of Minsk holidays I can only remember one group where no one cried – that were boys that work on the orphanage’s farm. They were tough, with no emotions and sentiments – real men!

In the orphanage I called to see the children in Unit 4 that were on holidays in Minsk earlier – they came all asking questions and having small requests. Don’t know why it is always so painful to see Tanya. I think her condition is getting worse and Tanya’s body becomes motionless, it’s only her beautiful face that live a separate life. She lies there on the floor in such an unbelievable twisted position: her head leaning towards the wall and her body looks like a separate part. I want to pick her up and sit her but realize that it’s extremely hard for her. What an unimaginable pain has been suffered and is still suffering this girl (and not only her). Tanya wanted badly to come to us, but unfortunately we couldn’t take her this time. I promise to take her next time if there are any more groups to come, and she replies: “It’s ok Tamara, don’t worry, I’ll wait”.

Beautiful, kind and pure children. When I have those moments of despair and it seems like life is unbearable and there is nothing ahead but darkness I recall your phone calls and voices of Tanya and Vaselina which wished me a good health, asked not to worry and to mind myself.  «We pray for you», - I heard them speaking to me on the phone! Heavily sick children think and worry about the others, while the majority of people don’t value what they have, don’t know how to live and to cherish every single day, they don’t know how to love and be thankful for every day. Thank you so much, dearest, kindest hearts. Perhaps with your prayers I’m still alive we are all alive...

Shortly before they left I got a list of the names of the children for the next holiday week (made by the children)! God bless them!

Saniukevich family says thanks

Recently we have got a thank you letter from the Saniukevich family who applied to us looking for help with the surgery for their twins Sasha and Pasha. Here is what mother says: 

"On the 5th of August we are going for the surgery, and after that on the 10th we have to be in the clinic sanatorium for putting on casts to stretch muscles. Many thanks for the winter time period as there was 700$ tranferred to our account all thanks to your organization.

We also express our gratitude to everyone who donated towards the surgery! We hope to hear more news from the family soon!

News from Alisa Marchenko

Dear friends, we have got an email from the Marchenko family. There has recently been an information letter from them looking for help. Unfortunately, the amount they needed for the surgery hasn't been fundraised yet. Here is what the mother writes:

"Good afternoon! We thank everyone who has helped and is helping us! We wish you all the best, peace, love and good HEALTH !!!  There are no major changes about Alisa. It's very little time left before the surgery and we still haven't got a half of what's needed for the treatment. We are asking you again to help Alisa, we have noone esle to ask! Supporting Alisa means giving her a chance to learn important basic human skills - stand, walk and eat independently. You can still help her by putting money on the mobile number + 375 29 244-54-43  - it will further be transferred to the charity account. Or transferring the money on the bank card of Belarusbank: 4255 2000 3893 0087 until 01\19. - Marchenko Alla Valentinovna. I'm hoping for people's help!!! Thanks a lot for your kindest support! "                                                                                     

We support mother's words and ask you to contribute as much as you can: every little helps the child to make a big difference to her life. We are hoping for you!

Sofia Markevich needs treatment

Dear Friends, 
The Markevich family is looking for your help in fundraising money for their little daughter Sofia's treatment. Here is the story:
Family Markevich from the Grodno region is looking for to pay treatment for their daughter's disease in a specialized center "Olinek" Warsaw. The family earns enough funds to pay only for a part of the expensive treatment. Sofia's mother has the Rh-negative. And when the child was born the figures were quite regular: Birth weight of the child was 3300kg, height 52cm. The child was discharged the hospital almost healthy.
At first, everything seemed to be with their daughter was fine. Sofia developed as all the kids, started to hold her head up at the age of one month, ate well, started "talking", smiling. At 5 months started to roll over on her tummy, but when it was time to sit, Sofia did not try to do that. We began to worry. At 6 months we went to the rehab in Lida (town in Belarus). Then spent a month at home doing exercises and then went back to the hospital up to 10 months of the child's age. At the age of 10 months, the doctor sent us to "Mother and Child"center of Minsk. And there finally Sofia finally leanrt sitting up on her own. There were many tears of joy, seeing our daughter doing it herself. But the doctor decided to do an MRI scan of the brain to find out what the problem of the development delay was. The results of the MRI brought a terrible diagnosis: Earlier organic brain damage resulting from the BOP (thinned corpus callosum, atypical radial direction grooves in the parietal-temporal areas, and cerebellum) delayed speech and psycho-motor development. All this time we have been fighting this disease. We went on treatment sessions in rehabs in the town of Lida, Grodno, Minsk, Brest, also in Lithuania. The results are positive. At the age of one year and three months Sofia started crawling on all fours, at the age of one year and seven stood up up in bed, at two years my daughter started to make the first steps. It's not so bad, but when Sofia turned 2 years and a half she started having convulsions. But, thank God, they did not bring her backwards in her development, she preserved all her skills. But because of the seizures we lost a lot of time. After the seizures went away we started treatments again. Being treated in Brest, Minsk, Lida. We twent twice to the dolphin therapy in Minsk, we went to Minsk for logopaedic massages in the "I speak" center. Every day we are doing exercises and get treatment with medication. A doctor in Minsk has recommended us to go to Warsaw for rehabilitation. The method is called Tomatis. We did one course from 5 January to 17 January 2015 and a second course of 2 March to 13 March 2015. The results are good, Sofiyka began to speak more words, short sentences (Bi Dad, Mom let itd), attentively, become better eat with forks itself became perseverance. The speech and language therapis  in the kindergarten said Sonia began to perform more complicated tasks. The third course is planned for31 August to 11 September 2015. The course fee is 8850 PLN. Between the second and third year there should be a break of no more than 6 months. And we need to be sure that the child keeps the old skills and gain new ones. Please do not pass our request by and give our daughter a chance to have a better quality of life. She will succeed!
Today, my daughter can walk independently but the gait is unsteady. She vocab is quite ok, she can say: mom, dad, woman, grandfather, aunt, uncle, Bi (car), AA (for going to the toilet), give me, etc. She can copy the sounds of animals. Our daughter is kind, affectionate, cheerful, emotional, curious. Doctors say that we have achieved good results. We believe that our daughter will recover soon and start speaking better.
                                  We will be glad of any help!!!
