The Healing Land

Sabina Filanovich and Anhelina Balbutskaya feel the texture of seaweed for the first time. Living in a landlocked country (Belarus) this is their first experience of the sea and the beach. The children will spend up to a month with host families around the Pembrokeshire area of the U.K. An astonishing 85 per cent of Belarusian children are deemed to be Chernobyl victims: they carry Ògenetic markersÓ that could affect their health at any time and can be passed on to the next generation. A vicious cycle that unfortunately could continue for hundreds if not thousands of years. From the series 'The Healing Land'
