Charities

Chernobyl Children’s Life Line (Mid Suffolk Link)

The aim of this Charity is to help children suffering from after effects of the Chernobyl disaster and economic situation.  The children are brought to the UK on a respite visit to help their health improve: 4 weeks breathing clean air, eating nourishing food and drinking clean water can add as much as two years to these children’s life expectancy which has already been severely shortened by the after effects of the Chernobyl disaster.

Possibilities – Giving Uganda’s aids orphans a future.

‘Possibilities’ is a local Charity which works to give a future to children in Uganda who have been abandoned due, either directly or indirectly, to the AIDS virus.

We work to provide education, basic food and accommodation for many orphans.  Our aim is to help these children to forge an independent future for themselves.  We encourage a healthy work ethic and the ability to work together with us and other agencies for a better future.

We are involved in many projects from volunteering (gap year etc.), to goat herding and from sponsorship to volunteer travel holidays.  We visit Uganda regularly to manage the children’s progress and to ensure that all monies raised reaches its intended targets.
