“In August 2010 I traveled with a team of volunteers from the Burren Chernobyl Project in Ireland to Minsk, Belarus. I was granted unrestricted access to three separate rural asylums. We also visited the homes of two families who are given support from the Burren Chernobyl Project.” (Maurice Gunning; 12th Feb 2012)
