The Greater Chernobyl Cause

Working to save and improve lives in the former Soviet Union

Our projects include:

The Chernobyl Greater Cause

The Greater Chernobyl Cause and its team of dedicated volunteers are striving to transform the desperate lives of abandoned children and ease the suffering of the old and infirm in Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia.

Based in Cork, Ireland The Greater Chernobyl Cause began as a response to the world's worst nuclear disaster but has now widened its mission to concentrate on the human casualties of the break-up of the former Soviet Union. Supported by, among others, Actor Jeremy Irons, our work includes rebuilding squalid orphanages and hospices, shipping humanitarian aid, organizing food programmes and supplying vital medical equipment.
