Belarus children have healthy holiday in Andalucia

HUNDREDS of children from Belarus have been hosted by Andalucian families this summer.

In July 350 children visited the area, as part of a programme that started 12 years ago in reaction to the long term suffering faced by children after the Chernobyl accident in 1986.

The nuclear accident released a radioactive wave that travelled north to Belarus causing increased incidences of thyroid cancer and leukaemia.
