Reactor No. 4 at Chernobyl was the scene of the worst nuclear accident in history. The radioactive particles from the explosion in 1986 still affect the lives of people. Medical estimates suggest up to 4,000 people will die prematurely due to radiation exposure, and thousands more still suffer health effects, primarily in today’s Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
What we do
Since 2015, 119 children between the ages of 7 and 14, affected by the nuclear accident in Chernobyl in 1986, received comprehensive medical rehabilitation in Slovenia. The scope of the project is to enable children adequate medical rehabilitation program carried out at the Slovenian Red Cross Health and Youth Resort in Debeli Rtič, at the Slovenian seaside. In the next two years, additional 60 children will be included in the medical rehabilitation program containing, inter alia, respiratory physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and endurance exercises that will improve their health as well as their general well-being.
