URGENT APPEAL FROM CULTUR MIGRANT'S CENTER
Like so many other community organisations across the country, we were expecting to receive a cut in our annual funding at the beginning of the year. However, rather than receive news of the level of the cut, our funding has been completely stopped, with no clarification on any further funding.
We are now in a situation where we have just enough money to pay wages and rent for May, and despite repeated requests to the Office of the Promotion of Migrant Integration (OPMI), we have been given no indication whether or not the department will be providing further funding.
We would be grateful if you could support us by contacting Minister Alan Shatter, and your Meath elected representatives to intervene on our behalf at this crucial time.
