Tonight 1 in 9 children in Ireland will go to bed scared and hungry because they are living in Poverty. 

The harsh reality is poverty affects every aspect of a child’s life. Excluding them from many things that are considered basic, the things that every little boy and girl deserve. With your support Barnardos can be there for these children and ensure that they leave our programmes with more confidence and on an equal footing with their peers, giving them the best chance at a happier and healthier life. Give what you can to Barnardos collectors in your local area on Friday 14th September or donate now and help end the nightmare that is child poverty.
