Just Saying No

RTE reports:

A United Nations Committee has criticised what it calls “the continued refusal” by the four religious orders that ran the Magdalene laundries in Ireland to contribute to a redress fund for survivors of abuse.

The congregations are the Irish Sisters of Charity, the Good Shepherd Sisters, the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity and the Sisters of Mercy.

They say they are helping in other ways, chiefly by continuing to provide residential care for about 130 former laundry workers.
