Twenty five years on, the terrible legacy of the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl continues to affect a new generation. The children born after 1986 face birth defects, deformities and disease caused by the radioactive environment they are forced to live in. Trapped in a barren land, they live in extreme poverty and without hope.

Chernobyl Children's International, which the band have supported for many years, offers hope to those most affected by the Chernobyl nuclear explosion, the children of Belarus, Western Russia and the Ukraine.  Learn more here and take a look at this powerful video, produced to mark the 25th anniversary of the disaster.

Watching this brought me to tears and there is NO reason anyone should ever have to live like this or in any of these conditions...Ever. If God would send his angels, then let it be done now...and let these people no longr suffer ever again...Amen
