MALLORCA has welcomed 40 children from Ukraine and Belarus who will spend their summer holidays with families on the Island. The children come from areas close to Chernobyl and are orphans or suffer from dysfunctional family situations, and will stay in the Island until the end of August.
They were welcomed on Sunday (June 21) by the Per Ells Association, organisers of the initiative that has been working for 10 years with the goal of allowing the children respite from the high levels of radiation registered in their home towns. It is believed that these holidays could lengthen their lifespan by around a year.
