  3. A huge congratulations to Tanya Malachenko, who has recently graduated as a doctor! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿฉบ Tanya travelled to CCIโ€™s Cork Outreach Group for many years as a child for Rest and Recuperation. Helen and Donal Murray welcomed Tanya to their home through the years and provided the help and support Tanya needed to overcome the medical issues that she suffered with as a child. As well as the Murrayโ€™s, many other members of the Cork Outreach Group, in particular Alfie and Marcie Streete, played a huge part in supporting Tanya through the years. This is a huge achievement for Tanya, as she faced many obstacles and challenges but Tanyaโ€™s dedication to her studies never wavered. Everyone here at CCI couldnโ€™t be prouder! Since graduating, Tanya has secured a job in a paediatric hospital in Gomel and is loving her new role as Dr Malachenko. Well done Tanya! ๐Ÿ‘ https://www.facebook.com/6162933294/posts/10158509443603295/
  4. Tomorrow, 24 October, marks "United Nations Day". CCI are the only organisation working in the Chernobyl area to be accredited with official UN NGO status. On April 26th 2016, the 30th Anniversary of the accident at Chernobyl, CCIโ€™s Voluntary CEO Adi Roche addressed a special session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on invitation by the Belarusian Government.

  5. Today is 'United Nations Day' and 2021 marks the 76th anniversary of the UN. Chernobyl Children International are honoured to be the only UN accredited NGO working in the Chernobyl region. On April 26th 2016, the 30th Anniversary of the accident at Chernobyl, CCIโ€™s Voluntary CEO Adi Roche addressed a special session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on invitation by the Belarusian Government. As a result of this ground-breaking advocacy, the UN designated 26 April to be known forevermore as United Nations Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day. UN Day, celebrated every year, offers the opportunity to amplify our common agenda and reaffirm the purposes and principles of the UN Charter that have guided us all for the past 76 years.
