Cúnamh Iveragh is a group of parents, families and friends of people with intellectual disabilities of all ages living in the South Kerry area. Cúnamh Iveragh supports these intellectually disabled people in whatever way possible to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of their families.
I have cycled for them in the past, and many of you have supported their fundraising efforts to open a day care centre, and thank you again for that. They are now fundraising to create a 4-bedroom respite centre, the first in South Kerry. Some of the Cúnamh Iveragh members have challenging behaviour and the exhausted and ageing parents are finding their situation more and more difficult as the years go by. Most parents never get a break on their own, so they are hoping to build “A Home Away from Home" for their children, whilst having some temporary respite for themselves. This would be life-changing.
I hope you can help me by donating whatever you can. Simply click the Donate button. All donations are processed securely and funds raised will go directly to Cunamh Iveragh.
Many thanks! Eileen.
