One of the group, 15-year-old Lewis Brady, said: “We were in Gomel for seven days to strengthen the connection with Aberdeen’s twin city and help the youth there improve their English
“They were all very welcoming and we had a great time – I felt that it was very productive.”
They also visited a chocolate factory and took part in an environmental project planting trees.
They also tried their hand at bricklaying, plastering and welding.
