WITHOUT YOUR HELP THESE CHILDREN MAY DIE. "

In April of '1986, the nuclear reactor in Chernobyl, Russia ex-
ploded with a fury 90 times more powerful than the atomic
blast at Hiroshima.

It is estimated that more than 800,000 Russian children have
been contaminated. In Minsk alone, more than 7,000
children under the age of seven are registered as having
leukemia.

The effects of this contamination are unrelenting. Each month
hundreds more children continue to fall victim to the ravages
of leukemia, bone deformity, thyrorid abnormalities, sup-
pressed immune systems and other diseases too horrifying
to mention. Yet there are not the resources in Russia to pro-
vide them with medical treatment or diagnosis.

In response to this emergency, Chabad of Israel has created
a medical relief fund called Chabad's Children of Chernobyl.

Since August 4th, 340 children between the ages of six and
sixteen have been airlifted from the contaminated environ-
ment of Chernobyl to Kfar Chabad, a small village in Israel
located 15 miles south of Tel Aviv. In addition, 50 pair of
parents have joined their children. Here, as part of Chabad's
Children of Chernobyl. Project, they are living, attending first-
rate schools, and receiving top-quality medical care in a clinic
created especially for their needs.

The medical diagnoses are not good. They point to leukemia
and stunted growth, enlarged thyroids, the tell tale signs of
malignant nodules and tumors, and suppressed immune
systems that cause six-year-old children to be hospitalized
when minor colds quickly transform into life-threatening
pneumonia.

With proper medical treatment there is hope. However, it

is necessary to act quickly before the effects become
irreversible.

Medical testing and treatment is expensive and funds are
desperately needed.

Your contribution to Chabad's Children of Chernobyl Project
can give them a chance for a bright and healthy future.

WON'T YOU PLEASE HELP?

Every child deserves
a healthy future!
