About the event

 There are currently over 4,000 women (44% of DP population) living in some inhumane conditions in Direct Provision Centres in Ireland.  

Women receive only 38 Euros per week allowance 

Women with Children receive no child allowance from the Government 

The allowance women receive on a weekly basis have to cater for sanitary products which is not provided by the Contractors. 

Depression is very high among women living in Direct Provision. There have been some cases of suicide in DP Centres. 

Single women in direct provision usually share a bedroom & one toilet with minimum 5 other women on average for 4 years.  

We are planning this conference to bring women in Ireland and direct provision together in solidarity and empower those that have to live in this brutal system while contractors make millions on their misery.
