The Chernobyl Greater Cause

The Greater Chernobyl Cause


The Greater Chernobyl Cause immediately pulled all its operations out of Russia on the 24th February 2022 due to War against Ukraine.
Ukrainians are suffering this very moment from the effects of Russian violence. That violence targets innocent civilians and society’s most vulnerable people, these people are no different from you or me. The violence destroys homes, hospitals and countless lives. It tears families apart and sends many into exile – millions of people being forced to leave their homes.
But Ukraine is resilient and they continue to be strong and fight for their nation’s survival and for the right to dictate their own future. They need your support to overcome a brutal enemy that does not share the same values as Ukrainians – or Irish.
The Greater Chernobyl Cause has been helping people for over two decades and is the Irish organisation best placed to provide humanitarian support since Russia’s full-scale invasion in February 2022. Nearly two  year later, Ukraine continues to defend its territory and provides civilians with the support needed to rebuild lives and livelihoods.
Your support – and the support of the wider Irish community – has been critical to that success, however more needs to be done. The support you give to Ukraine will help to save lives and rebuild communities. Your generosity will buy food, clothing and medicine, help to build shelter, provide medical and mental health assistance and ensure that millions of displaced men, women and children can live in safety and dignity.

Charity Head, Fiona Corcoran and her 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 and Ukraine.


Vast countries are now enjoying new political freedoms but still wrestle with acute social problems. There is dire poverty, ruined health, homelessness, disease and premature death.

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.
