During a systems test April 26 of 1986, there was a nuclear disaster at reactor number 4 of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. A series of power surges resulted in a rupture of the reactor, exposing the core to air and causing an explosion and emission of radioactive fallout over a large geographical area.
My husband and I run a charity ib Norfolk, we deliver aid to the people in Belarus, who received 70% of the fallout, we have both been over on a convoy, it breaks your heart to see them. unfortunately people forget, with your pictures hopefully people will remember them.
This child clearly has untreated hydrocephalus. It's actually quite common to see children affected this way in Eastern European orphanages where they are not given a surgical shunt, regardless of radiation exposure.
