Since 2001, Canadian Aid for Chernobyl has initiated an annual food box donation appeal that has grown in popularity both in Belarus and in Canada. The food boxes are packed and shipped in our containers and hand delivered by our own delegation to impoverished families that remain living within the radiation-contaminated areas.
A $50 donation will purchase 50 lbs of quality non-perishable staple foods consisting of pasta, rice, flour, sugar, coffee, tea, canned meats, jam, and peanut butter. In addition, bar soap and oral hygiene products are included: A package valued at more than $75, with shipping expenses included. Belarusian families are anxious and extremely grateful to receive these packages.
Families helping families!
