A North-West Community group is set to benefit from funding to raise public awareness for the UN International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
The North-West Simon community which covers Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo have been allocated three thousand euro in funding by the Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton.
The Simon Community is one of twelve groups that will receive funding totalling thirty thousand euro as part of the initiative.
The Annual United Nations International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is a day to express friendship and solidarity with people who have to live with poverty and social exclusion every day of the year, in Ireland, Europe and around the world.
Claire McTiernan, CEO of the North-West Simon Community says the funding is a great boost in their aim to highlight the issue of poverty.
