The purpose of the Chernobyl Fund is to help children affected by radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of April 26, 1986. Maurice Frohn and I are coordinating efforts in the United States, United Kingdom and Europe to bring medication and food to the Chernigev "Revival" Children's Rehabilitation Center directed by Dr. Vasyl Pasechnik. We are also helping Children's Polyclinic No. 2 in Chernigev. Chernigev is a city of 320,000 forty miles east of the still-operating Chernobyl nuclear power station.
Please join us in efforts to help children who have been affected by the radiation. On August 30, 1996 the first shipment of life-sustaining humanitarian aid arrived in Chernigev through the generous donations of people like yourself. Your continued help would be greatly appreciated. The Chernobyl Fund operates as a 501 (c) (3) organization which means that all contributions to the Chernobyl Fund are completely tax-deductible in the United States.

Since visiting the Chernigev area with Maurice Frohn, surgeon from the United Kingdom, in April of 1996, we have been moved to do all we can to help children in Chernigev, Ukraine. We have focused our assistance to Children's Polyclinic No. 2 and the center for rehabilitation of handicapped children called "Revival." It officially opened on June 19, 1996.
The only way that 850 disabled children can get any kind of therapy is through assistance from the outside of Ukraine. I feel privileged to be involved.
Several have valiantly joined us to help out in this mission.
For example, area hospitals in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota are donating medicine. Also, we are able to buy pharmaceuticals for 6% of wholesale for humanitarian needs.
