The charity was formed in 1991 when Heather and David Lancashire (residents of Wells) were approached by a Belarusian journalist trying to bring 30 children affected by the Chernobyl disaster to England for recuperation. Fifteen host families took part and the children aged from 9-16, who were mostly billeted in pairs, stayed in Wells for 4 weeks.

Basic arrangements for the visit have remained much the same since 1991. Children get a chance to play and receive medical attention amongst many other opportunities.
