Enniscorthy support

nniscorthy Fáilte is looking for people to help identify Ukrainians in local communities so the organization can connect them to the support center.

A spokesman for the group said: “If you become aware of a refugee family being hosted near you, please contact enniscorthyfailte@gmail.com or send us a message on the Facebook page: @enniscorthyfailte.

The spokesman also emphasized the fact that the group is constantly looking for volunteers to get involved and support.
