Even 30 years after Chernobyl, ten million people in Belarus, Russia, Moldova and Ukraine are still suffering from the long-term health consequences of the disaster.
There are many health impacts of environmental disasters. The response also must be multi-faceted. Global Green and its SOCMED program deliver a range of health care interventions aimed at healing children, youth, families and communities affected by radiation accidents and exposure to dangerous chemicals.
Therapy camps provide children with clean environments and vital treatment. The innovative Health for the Future program provides a wide range of preventive and treatment services. It focuses on people directly exposed to radiation and chemical contamination.
The four-week programme includes communal activities with games and sport in non-contaminated areas, along with vitamin-rich food and essential medical therapy.
