Ireland has welcomed 5,500 refugees and we are planning to have up to 100,000 but we have no limit. 20,000 families have offered to take in refugees into their homes. Many trucks with supplies have gone to Ukraine driven by Irish drivers and donated by the public. “Our primary impulse is to assist those fleeing war,” said the Taoiseach.
Ireland is given them all a PPS number and a medical card. They will have free education, allowed work and health care. If they cannot work they will get welfare.
Kids and adults can continue on their primary, secondary and college qualifications free.
The citizens have given €10,000,000 to one charity Irish Aid alone. The Irish government has given €20,000,000 in cash to Ukraine. Now Irish businesses are offering free supplies and cash donations. Ireland like Ukraine is a neutral, democratic state. We have never being the invader but we have being invaded. We have great sympathy. They are a Jewish community and Putin to label them Nazis is so offensive. 🇮🇪 🇮🇪 🇮🇪 🇺🇦 🇺🇦 🇺🇦
