Fórsa, Ireland’s largest public service trade union, is to donate €100,000 to the UNICEF Gaza Crisis Emergency Appeal.
The union’s national executive announced the decision today (Wednesday) at its monthly meeting, which is taking place today in Cork.
The union’s general secretary, Kevin Callinan, said Fórsa’s national executive took the decision today due to the timing and urgency of the appeal: “The scale of the unfolding human catastrophe in Gaza demands a massive humanitarian response.
“Almost half of Gaza’s population are children, more than 1,200 of whom have been killed in the most recent bombing.
“Gaza needs urgent and practical support, which is why Fórsa’s executive has decided to make this donation,” he said.
