About the Book
The weenies all live at the Gomel Children’s Hospital in far off Belarus. But just because it’s far off doesn’t mean it should be forgotten. Nor should they. Every penny raised from the sale of this little book goes directly to the real Gomel children - the ones who are often too poorly to appreciate the lighter side of life.
Chernobyl Heart is a UK based charity aimed at helping the children at the hospital to get a second chance at life. This book shows the adventures of some of the luckier ones who’ve been getting out and about and into mischief. Unfortunately, not all of them are so fortunate.
