Tallow Refugee Community Sponsorship

€535.00

Goal : €1000
From 14 fantastic supporters

Hello! As you know Tallow as a community is involved in the Community Sponsorship Scheme with the Irish government whereby we are linked with and support a family living in a refugee camp to move to our village. We are so excited that a family has been identified and have accepted our invitation to move to our village!  Dr O'Keeffe is suggesting that private patients make donations here if they wish for the Syrian family moving to our village rather than paying them for phone consultations during Covid19.
The funds raised will be given to the Syrian refugee family when they arrive in our village to help them get on their feet while they look for work and settle in. They were due to come this month but because of Corona Virus they are delayed. We hope they can get here soon and move on with their lives after years of limbo living in a refugee camp and after fleeing their war-torn home. We know they are excited to come and so happy that the people of Tallow have invited them.
Thank you!
