Autumn adventure in Gorodische
Our Irish volunteers never seize surprising us with their love and dedication to our children. Neither long trips, nor bad autumn weather stop them from coming to Belarus.
Last week a group of our Burren Chernobyl Project volunteers were helping the workers of Gorodische children’s orphanage to look after the kids and young adults. They were having a lot of fun organizing sports events, a concert, games and entertainment for the older boys and girls, as well as supporting the staff at changing nappies, feeding, doing massage sessions with the children in beds and those in the wheel chairs.
The group has also purchased lots of footwear and nappies. But none of these material things can be as rewarding for the volunteers as the love of children, their smiles and happiness.
We say many thanks to our lovely Patricia McEnery-Noonan, Bernadette Mullen, Deirdre Anglim, Claire Moroney, Noreen Bernadette Collins, Bridget McCarthy for their fantastic work!!!
