All families belong together, and nobody should be separated from their loved ones because of where they are from. But today, thousands of refugees in Ireland are apart and we desperately need your help to reunite them.

Refugees are just like other people with hopes and dreams. Yet, they are often unable to recover and plan for their future as they find themselves isolated and far from their loved ones in a new foreign country.

Being apart from close family is a huge barrier to rebuilding a life in Ireland. Family reunification rights for refugees and persons eligible for subsidiary protection are contained in sections 56 and 57 of the International Protection Act 2015. Family is a basic Human Right. 

Families belong together and we must do all we can do make this happen.

Don’t let Refugees spend this Christmas alone.
