CFF suspends Chernobyl work

Clean Futures Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that aids in cleaning up or caring for those affected by industrial disasters, has had to end its operations in Ukraine at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Their efforts included proving healthcare to 50 employees and additional fire brigade workers who are trapped on site, according to CFF. The organization was also caring for about 350 dogs who are strays.

The stray dogs were being cared for and fed throughout the winter can be difficult, according to CFF. Without the food that is provided, the strays are forced to seek prey in the wooded areas, which are also home to wolves. Dogs were feed early in the week of February 25, prior to the invasion of the by Russian forces. 

The small crew at the Chernobyl site maintains a portion of the power grid which is integral to several areas, including the city of Kyiv. 

“We implore all of our supporters around the world to petition the elected officials of their country to demand the withdrawal of Russian forces from Ukraine, and recognize the sovereignty of the Ukrainian people,” said Dr. Jennifer Betz, board member of Clean Futures Fund. “Without immediate withdrawal, the outlook is dire - the families that we have supported for the last 5 years will be left to source and pay for their own lifesaving medications, and the dogs will be left to fend for themselves without food or medical support, in what is still the harsh months of winter.”

Chernobyl stray dogs and cats are provided veterinary care, food, and spays and neuters animals. The non-profit’s work has been instrumental in reducing the number of wild dogs by an estimated 50%.
