Godel Begin Working with Chernobyl Children

Godel, a software development nearshorer with offices in UK and Belarus has today announced its pledge to provide a monthly charitable donation as on-going support to UK and Belarus based Children and Young Adults Charity, Chernobyl Children’s Project UK.

Linda Walker MBE Executive Director of Chernobyl Children’s Project UK explains the difference that Godel’s pledge will make to children in Belarus.
“Much of our work in Belarus focuses on raising the level of opportunities for children and young people with disabilities. Our aim is to provide care and respite to families who have been impacted by the Chernobyl disaster.  It is now almost thirty years since the accident and the care, which we continue to provide, is still invaluable to those in need.

Linda continued, “Any donations from partners make a huge difference Cheap Jerseys free shipping in allowing us to help those in need, but our agreement with Godel that that they will support us on a monthly recurring basis is fantastic and allows us to plan ahead and really make a difference to all of the children and young adults in our care.

The significant donation from Godel will fund the purchase of much needed equipment and cover on-going carer costs across multiple projects.

Neil Turvin, CEO of Godel said
“After meeting Linda and seeing the hard work she has put into supporting the children of Chernobyl, and in seeing the continued dedication of her colleagues and host families, we felt compelled to help and give something back. We have offices in Belarus and with this charity helping children and young adults in Belarus, it is a cause that is close to our hearts.”
