SUPPORT FREE VISAS FOR CHORNOBYL CHILDREN

19.09.12


The future of vital recuperative holidays for children living with the after effects of the Chornobyl disaster is threatened because the FCO has announced that free visas for Chornobyl Children will end in March 2013.
The UK will be only government in the EU to start charging. All others grant gratis visas as they acknowledge the important work done helping children living with the aftereffects of radiation by boosting their immune systems and improving their health.
The proposal to charge for visas will add £86 per child to the cost of bringing them to the UK, placing a heavy burden on charities already struggling to raise funds, resulting either in fewer children coming to the UK for recuperative breaks or the closure of smaller charities.

Please support the continuation of gratis visas and the work of Chornobyl charities by following the link and signing the petition.
