The Bread of Love!

Once again this fabulous community has come through, exceeding our hopes and allowing us to continue our programs and initiatives.  Last night our annual Gala Dinner and Charity Auction raised over $100,000 to help the children of  Chernobyl!

Here our lead interpreter Marina Ladyjenko and some of the girls greet the guests with the traditional Belarusian greeting of bread and salt:

Thanks to everyone involved, we are “Making a Difference … Together!”

Rotarians Host BBQ for Children of Chernobyl

Monday night (July 28th) the two local Rotary Clubs hosted the Children in our “Relief from Radiation” program for a BBQ.  It was held at the Brockville Museum and enjoyed by the children, their host families and of course the Rotarians.

Here the children, some of the host families and few Rotarians pose for a group photo.

The Rotary Clubs have, and continue to be, avid supporters of our programs and it was a great opportunity for them to mingle with the children.  Thank you Rotary Club of Brockville and Rotary Club of the 1000 Islands for a great evening and your ongoing support!
