You may recall how a group of young asylum seekers wanted to make an information booklet and DVD explaining the Irish asylum process in a child-friendly way to other asylee children.
They were seeking help to raise €3,100 to complete the project via Fundit.
Well they did it.
And they’re currently launching the booklet and DVD at the European Parliament Office on Molesworth Street, Dublin.

This was the booklet created by Escort in 1994 and used by me (and many others) to help Irish women to travel to the UK for abortions. It was quietly distributed among activists in Ireland as while we won the right to information it was only to be dispensed by drs and counselors in a pre internet time. I had 25 of these and this is the last one, I held on to it and photocopied it many times for women who needed the information. Today it is a historical document and reminder of all those women.
