Over five thousand people a year are visiting The Deadzone in Chernobyl. This was the site of the worlds worst nuclear disaster to date. The total number of those that died as a consequence of the disaster is impossible to count up. Be it during the clean up or from the contamination that erupted from the blown reactor and spread throughout Russia and Europe. Two decades later the area is being marketed as a tourist destination.

Below is a link to a UK based charity that is helping the children of Ukraine that are still effected due to what happened back in 1986.
