How to help the homeless in Ireland, with a gift guide
Posted On August 1, 2021
The homeless are a huge problem in Ireland.
More than half the country’s population live on the streets.
According to the Irish National Homeless Persons’ Survey, a staggering 2.4 million people are on the brink of homelessness.
The problem of homelessness is the subject of a major documentary series that airs on BBC Two on Wednesday.
The series is called Good for the Homeless.
The subject of the series is Michael O’Donnell, a young man from Kilkenny, Co Cork who lost his mother to a car crash.
He has struggled with mental health issues for a long time, having a mental health breakdown.
He has struggled to find the courage to seek help, but recently, a group of friends took him in and gave him a new lease of life.
The story is told in the first half of the show, which will be broadcast on the BBC on Wednesday night.
O’Donnell was born in the UK and moved to Ireland at the age of 10.
He and his family moved into the Co Cork flat in 2007 and lived there for several years.
The programme looks at O’Neill’s recovery, the struggles of homelessness, and his relationship with his mum.
The Irish Times recently asked for help with our campaign.
We wanted to hear from you.
We are asking that you send us a tweet saying what your idea of good is and tell us how you think it should be funded.
The idea is that if you donate to this campaign, you will be supporting an idea that we believe has the potential to make a real difference in the lives of those in need.
We are currently looking for people to share their stories in the form of Tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram posts, and emails.
Please send your stories to our new account @GoodfortheHomeless.
Please keep in mind that while the BBC has not yet chosen which stories to use, it will be exploring a wide range of topics including: mental health, homelessness, mental health support, and a range of other issues.
