Well-known faces came out in force?to support Liz?O’Donnell?and Noel Kelly’s Chernobyl Lunch in Fire?Restaurant, Mansion House this week. ?The annual fundraiser for Adi Roche’s Chernobyl Children International in advance of the inaugural ?International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day.?

Liz and Noel’s Chernobyl Lunch – an annual fundraiser hosted by MSD Director of Policy and Public Affairs and Chernobyl Children International (CCI) board director Liz O’Donnell, along with businessman, talent manager and CCI board director Noel Kelly – plays a major role in helping to save the lives of?hundreds of children born with genetic heart defects in Eastern Ukraine.

That’s according to CCI’s voluntary CEO Adi Roche who said many of the children who born in the region, with congenital heart defects such as a condition called ?Chernobyl Heart? won’t live beyond their sixth birthdays without life-saving open heart surgeries.

Kathryn Thomas and partner Padraig McLoughlin, Morah Ryan, 2FM DJ, journalist and broadcaster Dave Fanning, Emmy award winning Baz Ashmawy, style as well as Operation Transformation’s Dr. Ciara Kelly and Karl Henry were just some of the guests who supported the event.

The importance of the event was echoed by fellow CCI board member, Ali Hewson, who said, ?In a time of disturbing world stories Liz and Noel’s Chernobyl?Lunch is a great moment when CCI can tell the positive news of the work done for children in Belarus and Ukraine, thanks to the support of Irish people and also to state how important it is to continue that work.??
