CHERNOBYL NUCLEAR DISASTER CHILD A RINGING SUCCESS AT KINVER ROTARY CLUB

Andrei brings Kinver Rotary Club to order.

The highlight of Andrei Buiko’s 10th birthday, spent hundreds of miles away from his home in the Grodno region of Belorussia, was to ring the bell to call members of Rotary Club to order when he visited the club as part of a month-long visit to the U.K. organised by a charity that supports children suffering as a result of the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl 26 years ago.

Along with his friend Dima Khabian (9), Andrei is staying at the home of Ann Becke, who has run the local branch of the Chernobyl Childrens Life Line for the past 18 years.
