Direct Provision Donations

Hey, it's Tilly and Nadia here! We are two 22 year old college students who wanted to do what they could to help those in direct provision centres, after both spending a lot of time learning all about direct provision in Ireland. 
Tilly focused on direct provision in Ireland in her undergrad degree in Social Science, and then in her masters degree, focused on the impact that direct provision has on the lives of the children living in DP centres.
Nadia, after spending her spare time learning about direct provision, set up a donation box outside her house, and then we came together to set up this gofundme page and our instagram page @dpdonations!
We are have collection points set up all across Ireland to college items such as toiletries, basic hygiene products etc, to disperse to the different DP centres in Ireland.
When it comes to the funds we are making on this page, we are in direct contact with many asylum seekers in direct provision centres, who are helping us learn about exactly what they need. Every centre will have different needs and we will cater to each centre to give them what benefits them the most. We are also in touch with MASI, RAMSI, The Irish Refugee Council, Our table and many more charities working for those in direct provision, who will also advise us on what is needed in DP centres. 
So to summarise, the money will be going to :
- buying supplies that are needed in these centres.
- specific requests from the DP centres
- expenses to get donations to centres
- donations to support DP charities 
Send us a message if you have any queries at all! 
Thank you so much.
