ITF and the Slovenian MFA signed a funding agreement

14.07.2015

On 10 July 2015, ITF signed a funding agreement with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of the Republic of Slovenia to enable medical rehabilitation for two groups of 30 children from Belarus in August 2015 and 2016, who suffer from the consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.

The rehabilitation programme will be carried out in cooperation with the Slovenian Red Cross at the Youth Health Spa Resort at the Slovenian seaside (Debeli rtič). It will include the following:

  • Medical rehabilitation: respiratory physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and exercises for persistence.
  • Educational workshops and sport activities. 
  • Excursions and social evenings.

This project is a continuation of ITF efforts in providing adequate medical rehabilitation for children from Belarus who have been affected by radiation as a consequence of the Chernobyl disaster. Namely, a similar project in cooperation with the Slovenian Red Cross with the funding provided by the Slovenian MFA has been successfully carried out already in 2012.
