35th United Nations Chernobyl Remembrance Day

2nd Year Walk of Hope
35th United Nations Chernobyl Remembrance Day

2nd Years Walk of Hope

It is 35 years today, the 26th of April since one of the most tragic accidents in history occurred. The fourth reactor exploded in the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, releasing radioactive material into the environment. To this day, there are still children with disabilities living in poor conditions in orphanages. Chernobyl Children International, founded by Adi Roche, are working hard to help these children feel cared for and loved. Adi spoke at the United Nations and they designated the 26th of April as ’International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day’ to mark and remember the victims of Chernobyl in Ukraine.

Today, all of the second-year classes of Dominican College, Griffith Avenue collectively walked and ran 35km to mark the 35 years since the Chernobyl accident. We also lit candles to mark the darkest day in nuclear history.
