Fine Gael Meath East TD, Regina Doherty, has welcomed Lottery funding for the Daughters of Charity Child and Family Service, which will be used for outings for children living in the asylum seekers centre in Mosney, Co. Meath.
The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Frances Fitzgerald TD, has confirmed that €2,000 in Lottery Grant Funding is being provided.
“The Daughters of Charity Child and Family Service provide invaluable supports to families in Dublin and across the North East region, working in collaboration with the Health Service Executive.
“Minister Fitzgerald has confirmed that €2,000 is being made available as part of Lottery funding.
“This money will be directly provided to bring children living in Mosney on outings; something that is beyond the means of their parents. Children in the asylum process are at the fringes of our society, and this small grant should go a long way in improving the quality of their lives.”
