Every year about 25 children come to Wilmington from Belarus. They spend 6 weeks here via a program through Port City Community Church. Their goal is to detox from the horrible ongoing effects of the Chernobyl Nuclear disaster over 25 years ago. The kids who come here live in an environment that is polluted with radiation. Their soil, food, water and air are all contaminated. They have super high rates of cancer and shortened life expectancy rates. Getting out of that environment helps their systems reboot, flush and filter their systems. Of course, the surf camp is very therapeutic and beneficial for their overall well being and confidence. Lots of smiles in this camp!
