Chernobyl kids share cookery class with pupils

First published in Local News

CHILDREN from Chernobyl got a taste of life in south Essex on a visit to their British counterparts.

Mayflower High School, Billericay, welcomed the Ukranian children to join its pupils for the day in some of its classes.

They sat in on a cookery class, explaining their cuisine to the British children and hearing the kind of things they like to eat.

The visit was organised by the Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline charity, which supports children affected by the 1986 nuclear disaster.

The charity brings child victims of the disaster to the UK for recuperative breaks.

An explosion and fire at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant released radioactive waste into the atmosphere.

Were these children born in or around 1986, some 30 years ago?

No, I go to Mayflower and in Assembly, we got told that it affects generations. If their parents were affected, then their children could be born with problems. And so on. Chernobyl is completely abandoned because the waste is in soil. They got to go swimming for the first time too, since the radiation affected the water. It was a great day :)
