In a comment to MoldovAnn‘s recent post about Chernobyl aid organizations [1], executive director of one such charity mentions [2] new approaches to rehabilitation of children affected by the 1986 catastrophe. The charity – Chernobyl Children's Project International – has a blog [3], too, and one of the stories [4] there is about a 64-year-old U.S. woman whose donation has helped acquire medical equipment that “will save as many as 175 young lives a year” in Belarus.
