Helping Belarussian Children


The Chernobyl nuclear accident which occured on April 26, 1986 continues to affect the children of Belarus. Each summer, the American Belarussian Relief Organization (ABRO) brings children from Belarus to America. The children arrive with suppressed immune systems due to the contaminated regions in which they live. Host families throughout America open their homes and hearts to these precious children for 6 weeks each summer. The children receive medical, dental and eye care; clothing; and love in caring homes during their visit. They return to Belarus with a renewed hope and an extension on life. (It is suggested that a 6 week rest from the radiation extends a child's life by one year.)

ABRO Winston Salem is located in central North Carolina. Our focus is to minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of these children. It is our desire to be involved in helping the children of Belarus as a Christian humanitarian group associated with ABRO of North Carolina. We appreciate the generous donations and support of individuals, churches, host families, medical personnel and private and/or corporate contributors for assisting us in our passion to help the children of Belarus.
