Health - Children of Chernobyl



Still no one knows exactly how many people have been affected by the disaster at Chernobyl. Even those born decades later have radiation symptoms. There are thousands of cases of cancer. Every year children are sent to Cuba for treatment. Vladimir was one of at least 18,000 children affected "he could not sit up, lay down or eat on his own", his mother said. Of the 350,000 people displaced, only 400 have returned to the ghost town.
