About the Event
Abolish Direct Provision Ireland is a grassroots Campaign that was started in November 2018 with the main purpose of creating awareness about this horrible system of Direct Provision, empower asylum seekers while they wait for their papers to be process and engage the government to abolish this inhumane system that has been welcoming asylum seekers to Ireland since 2000.
There are currently approx 6000 asylum seekers in Ireland with 36% being Children between the age of 0-16 and over 44% being women.
In recent days we have been receiving calls from different asylum centres in Ireland about the living conditions, lack of information and provision of the basis hygiene and cleaning products available at many centres in different Counties. Some signs of the Covid-19 was reported at centres in Waterford, Galway, Cork and Monaghan.
Asylum Seekers in Ireland don't have the opportunity of self-isolation because some rooms have have 5-8 persons sharing during this time. The low income allowance of 203 euros weekly was not given to asylum seekers in this emergency situation too.
We are organising this appeal to provide emergency assistance for asylum seekers in the event a massive outbreak happens at one of the centres in Ireland. Thanks for your support. Here is a Link to donate
