Belarus 2014



For the past two years Ms. Desmond has travelled to Belarus during the Summer months to work with children in Gorodishche and Cherven, as part of the Burren Chernobyl Project. This year both Ms. Desmond and Ms. Colfer will be travelling to Belarus. They wish to thank the pupils, parents, staff and community of Corpus Christi for their overwhelming generosity and support towards the Burren Chernobyl Project. All money donated will be put to good use during their time in Belarus. Please check out the video link below for further information and some photos from last years work.

Update from Belarus Summer 2014


As many of you will know, Ms. Colfer and Ms. Desmond travelled to Belarus to work in the orphanages of Cherven and Gorodishche during the summer. We are very grateful to you for all the support they received in advance of the trip. All the girls in the school took part in a non-uniform day and some of the parents also held coffee mornings or bake sales to support the work in Belarus They also received a fantastic donation of football jerseys, which they were able to pass on to the children and teenagers in both places.

The monies raised were used for direct provision in the orphanage. Before the teachers travelled, they bought toys, clothes, underwear and pyjamas for the children. Once they arrived, they were able to use the remainder of the money for medical equipment (catheters, etc.) physiotherapy, bringing the children and teenagers on trips, outings and on picnics They were also able to provide for transport for the children and for setting up the delivery of supplies during the coming Winter. 

Thanks again for all your help and support.
