As the summer finally comes to an end, we are continuing our call for €810,000 to be invested in mental health support, home nursing care and outreach care for people with EB in Budget 2024 – an investment that would amount to less than 0.003% of the current health budget.
With your support, we are continuing to build pressure on the Government to meet with Debra and make this investment.
Over 100 people across Ireland have supported our call for investment by sending written messages that we have now turned into a book in support of Debra, while 1,800 of you have sent messages to the Minister for Health online through Twitter and Facebook. A huge thanks to everyone who has supported our campaign by taking this action.
We have written to the Minister again this week asking for a meeting so that we can present him with this book and explain in person why this investment is so vital for people living with EB.
So if you haven’t already, please will you join us in asking the Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, to meet with Debra?
You can also contact the Minister via email asking him to prioritise EB care and meet with us.
Thank you again, we are so grateful for your support.
