      On April 26, 1986 Ukraine and the earth recoiled from the world's worst nuclear disaster which spewed out many times the radioactive fallout of the Hiroshima atomic bomb. Two decades have passed and the effects of this disaster continue and actually increase. In fact, hundreds of thousands, mostly children, are still suffering with physical and psychological disorders. Let's not forget them.

Twins Sergei and Ira born on 15th June 1994. Their mother was five years old and their father was 11 years old in 1986 during the nuclear accident, living in Chernihiv 40 miles east of Chernobyl. They were healthy parents. The twins were premature at 32 weeks gestation. They have had recurrent infections and show retarded development with cerebral paralysis. Their therapy is a similar range of physiotherapy, cerebral stimulating drugs with speech therapy and the use of developmental toys.
