**********Urgent Appeal***************
There are currently 25 children in Edel House. Most of these are back to school in the coming days. Some have had to change schools because they are no longer in the area that they used to live in.

Please contact Colette through private message or at 021 4274240 if you can help. We are also supporting the families in B&Bs to get their children ready to go back to school but need your help.
