Host appeal for Chernobyl victim

Young Chernobyl victims have been visiting Guernsey since 1993
A home is needed for a child visiting Guernsey from Chernobyl.

Fourteen young people from Belarus are coming to the island in the summer on a trip organised by the Chernobyl Children Lifeline Guernsey Link.

During their four-week stay the group will enjoy various events, including a trip to the island's schools, as well as fun days at the beach.

The children are all victims of the nuclear fallout from the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

The Chernobyl plant was the scene of the world's worst civilian nuclear accident in April 1986, when its number four reactor exploded.

Groups of young victims have been making the tip from Belarus to the Bailiwick since 1993.

The children stay with host families, but one more home is needed from 5 June for a month.
