In 2015, the Irish Government pledged to take in 4,000 refugees from Greece, Italy and from refugee camps in Lebanon under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme. So far, only a small portion of this quota has been filled. After speaking with people from Irish NGOs, it became apparent that more information needs to be spread about Ireland to refugees who are facing major decisions regarding where they will spend the next chapter of their family life.
Swansong Films has been involved in many community outreach projects, please view a few of them here.
