What can You do To help??
In order to raise public awareness about the Chernobyl catastrophe in this 20th anniversary year we need your help. A short letter of support four our 2000 km bike trip will not only give us the courage to continue but will give the much needed hope to the Community Centers that FOCCUS supports, serving thousands of people whose lives have been forever changed as a result of the Chernobyl accident.

FOCCUS Volunteer Opportunities
FOCCUS is always in search of individuals willing to donate their time, financial resources, or talents to furthering the organization's efforts. Volunteer activities are currently focused on organizational development of FOCCUS (educating the public, fund raising, networking etc.) There are also limited opportunities for student internships with FOCCUS and with the UNDP office in Kyiv and, for those with Russian language ability, in the centers.
If you are interested in getting involved in FOCCUS, please contact Norma Berkowitz at: email@example.com or by phone at (608) 231-3198. Schedule a FOCCUS presentation for a community organization, book club, etc., to which you belong;
- Organize, with FOCCUS support, a Chernobyl discussion group;
- Mobilize your own fund raising event featuring FOCCUS representatives;
- Solicit gifts of time and money to assist the centers;
- Help us raise $3,000 to purchase vans for two centers who are trying to serve wide-spread rural communities.
