Community Windpower funding supports fun trip for Korosten kids

Chernobyl Children's

For children of Korosten, a historic city in Northern Ukraine, the past two years have been incredibly difficult. Following the illegal invasion of Ukraine by Russia, over 40,000 residents of Korosten were evacuated to Germany, Poland, France, Slovakia, and other countries. Some children have remained, and some funding raised by Community Windpower helped to support the organisation of a much-needed fun day out.

The children visited a water park, had a delicious McDonald’s lunch, and visited an animal zoo park afterwards to round off the day. On the worst days of fighting and bombardment, sirens in Korosten sound six times a day, however on this day there were two sirens meaning the children did not have to evacuate or interrupt their trip.

Michael Lafferty, Chairman of the Chernobyl Children’s Life Line Ayrshire Link, said that the day out would help take the children’s minds off the horrors of war, giving them a chance to be a kid again with their siblings and friends. Michael has worked with Ukrainian children for many years, and during the time of war he has also visited Poland to help the Ukrainian refugees who now live there. CWL were delighted to support CCLL with this funding, and we are so glad the children had an amazing time!
