Raleigh, North Carolina
Yura, foreground, and Galena Chekhovskiy — good friends from Belarus. We've known each other and worked together for nearly 20 years. They were in Raleigh for a meeting of ABRO (the American Belarussian Relief Organization), a 501c3 non-profit agency that works with children exposed to radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear accident. Yura is director for a sister organization in Belarus.
Galena and Yura, with Joe and Danita Strong. Joe and Danita are the directors of ABRO. For information on the organization see www.abro.org.
