Malformations. Cancers. Blindness. Weak immune systems. The health impacts of environmental disasters are many, which means the response also must be multi-faceted. Green Cross and its SOCMED programme delivers a range of health care interventions aimed at healing children, youth, families and communities affected by radiation accidents and exposure to dangerous chemicals.
Therapy camps provide children with clean environments and vital treatment. The innovative Health for the Future programme provides a wide range of preventive and treatment services with a focus on people directly exposed to such radiation and chemical contamination, as well as the generations to come.
Green Cross provides medical treatment to children in the Chernobyl region and rehabilitation, prosthetics and other devices to youth with disabilities in South-East Asia.
