Making the Chernobyl-affected kids 'visible' to Belarus

The Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine contaminated vast swathes of the surrounding area nearly 30 years ago. But Ukraine wasn't even the worst hit. Belarus suffered about 70% of the nuclear fallout. And some of the radiation victims there are the focus of a project by Polish photojournalist Jadwiga Bronte. She hopes to change the way people in Belarus see its disabled children of Chernobyl.
