75 years ago, Judy Fryd started a movement. 🙌

Her vision was to create a world where people with a learning disability - like her daughter Felicity - are valued, listened to and included. 🙂

To this day, we are working hard to make the UK the best place for people with a learning disability to live happy and healthy lives. 👍

We're working hard for people like Caroline - a brilliant artist who we support at home in Wiltshire - who drew this portrait of Judy to help us celebrate the #Mencap75 anniversary. 🥳

Help us to celebrate too - sign our pledge and support Judy's vision:

Many Chernobyl Children who have severe disabilities and medical problems are abandoned and left in state-run institutions in Belarus. In these institutions, there are no sounds of joy or happiness. No laughter. No music. Hope left this place a long time ago.

For these “Grandchildren of Chernobyl”, this institution is the only home they’ve ever known.

Their life-limiting conditions make 24/7 intensive care too difficult and too expensive for their families.

This Christmas, we are asking you to support CCI’s crucial Hospice and Community Care Programme.

This amazing programme makes it possible for families to care for their children at home.

It helps pay for expert medical staff and helps provide the medication a child with severe disabilities needs to continue breathing. It helps keep them safe and protected in the loving care of their families.

Because of Covid-19, CCI’s usual fundraising activity could not happen in 2021. Our resources are at breaking point. That’s why this appeal is our most crucial ever.

To find out more about CCI’s 2021 Christmas Appeal, and to make a donation, please click here: www.chernobyl-international.com/nastyas-next-breath-depends-on-you

Thank you ❤️
