This video is part five of six. Find the rest of the episodes at: www.youtube.com/ChernobylChildren

In the summer of 2003, architect and Chernobyl Children's Project International volunteer Duncan Stewart was in Belarus to design two buildings for CCPI and film a documentary. He suffered a near fatal accident.

Two years later, in recovery from massive injuries, he returned to see the completed work, reconstruct his broken memory, and learn more about the impact of Chernobyl on children and families in Belarus. This video tells the shocking story of Duncan's accident and rescue, his emotional reunion with the Belarusian doctors who saved him, and the CCPI projects that brought him to Belarus in the first place.

In this episode, Duncan visits Dr. Irina Kalmanovich at the Gomel Children's Hospital, who explains the observed genetic affect of Chernobyl on her young patients and their immune systems. Then, he visits with a Chernobyl firefighter -- or "liquidator" -- who describes the affect of his service on his health and that of his children.
