"The pain of Chornobyl still echoes and reminds of itself years after. Therefore, we do not stop our efforts to keep the confinement over the destroyed fourth power unit safe. And Ukraine feels the friendly helping hand of the whole world in dealing with this problem.

Providing social security, healthcare, and improved living conditions for more than two million citizens-victims of Chornobyl, especially children and persons with disabilities, is our daily concern.
