The administration of the hotel, which many of the Ukrainian refugees call their second home, has notified that they will have to leave before November 28. Now the refugees do not know where to go, despite the fact that the children of many have adapted well in the local school.
Seven months ago, Galina Isayeva moved from Ukraine to Ireland with her 10-year-old daughter, who went to the local school. According to her, the “emerald island” met them very friendly, but now the administration of the hotel, where they lived for several months, notified that they would have to leave before November 28. It is reported by Raidió Teilifís Éireann.
The children of many Ukrainian refugees attend Scoil Mhuire National School in the Dublin suburb of Klandalkin and live in a hotel nearby. Some call it their second home. But now 23 Ukrainian refugees with children have been notified of their impending eviction.
Principal Siobhan McKiernan said many of the parents were extremely upset.
“They have no idea where to go now. They were not told that they would find a new place of residence for them,” the director explained.
According to her, the children adapted well to the new school.
“They are involved in everything that happens and have become an integral part of our school,” McKiernan said.
According to the director, Ukrainian families just want their children to finish this year at school.
Galina Isaeva said that before none of the Ukrainian refugees who live in the hotel knew each other, but now they are very close.
“We do not know what will happen to our children. This is very serious stress for children,” she explained.
Kateryna Pafnutova moved to Ireland from the Donetsk region with her six-year-old son.
According to the woman, the child is very worried and just wants to stay at school with her friends and the teacher.
Angie Gough presents Helping Irish Hosts, which, like other charitable organizations, helps Ukrainian families find housing.
“Over the past six months, many families have settled here and lived happily in a hotel,” the woman explained in an interview. it would be great if we could find homeowners who would put everyone in close proximity to the school, but I don't think that's possible,” she said.
According to the representative of the organization, the local government should appoint a minister for refugees to help deal with the ongoing migrant crisis.
According to the Minister of Integration, by the end of the year, about 72,000 refugees are expected to apply for temporary protection in Ireland. And this is just the beginning. The government is already sounding the alarm, announcing an unprecedented increase in demand for housing.
