What is Direct Provision, you ask? Amnesty International describes the situation as such: "Direct Provision was established in 2000 and is Ireland’s system of state-provided accommodation and other basic necessities for people seeking international protection. DP centres are mainly hostels, hotels, and other accommodation owned and run by private companies for profit, paid for by the Government.
DP was designed as a short-term emergency measure. Instead, it has lasted more than 21 years. People were meant to spend no longer than six months while their asylum application was processed. Instead, they are trapped in limbo, often for years. Many are in overcrowded conditions, sharing bedrooms and bathrooms with strangers, lacking dignity and privacy."
For more information on Direct Provision, and how to support residents in these centers, you can check out the migrant-led organization MASI, or check out the rest of the Amnesty International source quoted above here.
