Candle of Grace is a newly formed not-for-profit organisation set up in Castlebar. Its main function is to host a few Chernobyl children from Belarus for much needed rehabilitation holidays. The idea of such an organisation came about from a family who themselves originate from the Chernobyl area in Belarus and know about their problems first hand. Having moved to Ireland a few years ago they were amazed at the generosity and kind-heartedness of the Irish people who know about Chernobyl and have been helping its victims for 30 years now.
Construction may be on a slow-down throughout the country, but the Chernobyl Children’s Project Westport Outreach Group is about to start building a very special house in central Westport. Constructed from the hundreds of bricks designed by the town’s children, it will be housed in the new premises — just off Mill Street, to the right of the Mill Street car park entrance — all designed for the Chernobyl Groups Bricks 4 Hope campaign.
