About Us

Every Child is Your Child work to establish an ongoing back to school assistance fund for children living in direct provision. We raise these much needed funds through an annual fundraising dinner event at Thomond park stadium. We also run an annual backpack drive-in between June and August, and our christmas gift drive between November and December.

ECIYC is a community group based in Limerick, set up with the overall goal of raising much needed funds for parents living in direct provision. Over 7,200 asylum seekers live in direct provision,

30% OF RESIDENTS ARE CHILDREN. 

We work towards an ongoing fund for school needs and supplies.

Our Current Campaigns

The Hush Hush Opening is less than one month away, and time slips by so fast.
We would urge all of you to register for this ASAP, so that we can send out your ‘packs’ and you have time to create and return your creations to us before the 19th of November.
This project will benefit two wonderful local charities:
https://clarehaven.ie/
 https://everychildireland.org/
To take part, please register here: https://www.mountshannonarts.ie/hush-hushexhibit
Once registered, you will receive two A5 cards in the post where you can choose to paint or draw [or whatever takes your fancy] and then return your works to us before the 19th of November.
If words are more your cup of tea, then why not paint a short poem, haiku, or favorite quotation.
Please don’t forget to fill out your name & signature on the back of the card[s]
Each card will be sold for €40, and proceeds will all go to the two charities (less our costs for materials and postage).
Please check out our website and social media pages for updates. We hope you will take part and look forward to receiving, many wonderful original pieces of art, for the exhibition.
