The Generation Pandemic Recovery Fund will deliver measurable life changing impacts for some 20,000 vulnerable children and young people in Ireland now and in the medium term.

But, we urgently need partners with vision and means to make that happen.

Without our Generation Pandemic Heroes this would not be possible.
Thank you.

As the country rebuilds, no child’s future should hang in the balance because of this virus or a lack of support. If our children aren’t rebuilt, the country isn’t either.

Patrons are individuals or corporates supporting in excess of €5,000.
