Community Compassion in Rathangan: Local Woman On Hosting Ukrainian Families Amidst Russian Invasion

Aoife Keane Baynes has been hosting a family for nearly a year.

91 per cent of those hosting Ukrainian refugees have had a positive experience.

The groups overseeing pledged accommodation for those displaced due to the Russian invasion have given an update to Government today on the current situation.

Aoife Keane Baynes is currently hosting a mother and her two children at their home in Rathangan.
