We can't do it alone

Right now thousands of people throughout Ireland and in your neighbourhood are cold, hungry and utterly worn out. People of all ages are struggling to make ends meet and this is causing untold damage to families and adding to the pressure of daily living for many.

This Christmas we will assist over 150,000 people with food, fuel and toys.

Since 2009 calls for assistance to SVP have increased by over 104%. In 2007 the SVP spent €24m in direct assistance. This year the figure will be around €40m. We cannot do it alone.

That is why SVP is asking for your help again this year.
