Three tiny little children aged between 7-9 from Belarus are being hosted by ourselves (Caroline and pete pearce) and two other family Jo Ruck’s and our new town councillor Emma Bryn’s

It’s 33 years since the Chernobyl disaster and the full implications of which may never be fully understood, but what we do know is that these children need our help, they’re under nourished, small for their age, so our aim is to supply a month of fresh air, healthy living and hopefully stressfree Fun.

While they’re here as well as health check, they will go swimming for the first time in their lives, camping in
the Gower, and a trip sponsored by monmouthshire Rotary club to Bristol Zoo.

This is their first of five years they will be coming to us, they will have very little, if any english, but please if you see us around, smile and say hello.

We like to thank everyone for the donations of clothes and to all that voted on line, I am delighted to say we were successful for award of £1000.

Friends Of Chernobyl’s Children

Well as you read this our three little Russian children who have spent a very happy month with us, are on thier way home with mixed feeling
no doubt, torn between the sorrow
of leaving after such fun in a healthy environment and the joy of seeing their families and friends again, while they were here they attended a centre in Raglan every week day, learning

to play with toys and games, playing outside and doing crafts.They went
on visits to the Dentist, Optician
and Chiropractor. But most of the outings were more fun, ranging from playgrounds, soft play and farm parks. The beach and swimming were very popular,

The children were given lots of useful things to take home with them, including all the kindly donated clothing, a year’s supply of vitamins, toys, toiletries and stationery.

Most importantly they take home
some wonderful memories, aspirations and hope for the future, and the knowledge that they have, in a small pocket of the Welsh countryside,
someone that care for them, so much
so to have them back next year and subsequent years to follow.

Friends of Chernobyl’s Children Monmouthshire Are an independent charity, who aim to improve the immune systems and general health and wellbeing of children who live in Belarus in the areas most affected by the Chernobyl disaster.

They bring children, accompaniedmby interpreters, to Monmouthshire (Three children are coming to Wyesham) for recuperative visits. The children will stay with host families but attend a centre each day, they receive dental and optical check, enjoy activities and outings and return home after a month with a supply of vitamins and donated clothing as well as many happy memories, if you have any children’s clothes age 5-12 no longer needed please think about donating it to us. Caroline will collect if necessary contact 01600 714603.

Do you believe in food waste? We at Food Box Monmouth don’t. A new initiative that collects surplus edible fresh food from local supermarkets and gives it out to people in need in our community.

The group was started by a few like minded, forward thinking people, whose aim is to stop the vast amounts of food that would otherwise go into the bin and put it into homes who need it.

So far Food Box Monmouth has collected and distributed 11 tonnes of surplus edible food equivalent to 35,000 meals.

People in need can come and collect it from their closest distributor in several areas of Monmouth, or have a delivery to their homes for people who are struggling to get out.

Fruit and veg comes with a small charge,just to cover transport as it comes mostly from Cardiff so a
£2 box is worth over £10 or a 50p bag for a carrier bag, so if you or someone you know could use a little help just check out facebook for notification when food is available in your area. If in Wyesham contact Caroline Pearce on 01600714603 to be put on my list I will deliver as and when.

Wyesham community project Will be having
a wonderful coffee morning on May 21st 9.30am – 11.30am. Raffle and homemade cakes. Everyone welcome.
