“My very first call to this Assembly is that these heroic people, liquidators of the nuclear disaster in Chornobyl, should be recognized and honored. There should be a global fund, so that their medical and social requirements are fully met”, founder of Chernobyl Children International Adi Roche said during the UN General Assembly’s session, dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Chornobyl nuclear tragedy (Voice of America).

In 1991, Roche founded the Chernobyl Children International, to provide aid to the children of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. Under her leadership, the CCI has delivered over €100 million to the areas most affected by the disaster and has brought over 25,000 children into Ireland for rest and recuperation purposes.

Earlier, Ukraine’s Permanent Representative in the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko said the scale of the Chornobyl disaster is equal to that of the Great Famine in Ukraine of 1932-33, the Second World War and the ongoing Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.
