Emma, a single mum to four young boys, was doing her best to get by after her marriage breakdown. Emma was overwhelmed. Her children were ill, her home was unsafe and she didn't have enough money to pay the bills.
Emma turned to Vinnies for help.
"All the help we’ve had has been amazing. It's not just about the financial things, it's the emotional support. They helped with my five-year-old son’s severe asthma. Volunteers come and visit me, just to say hello and even play with the kids. They are wonderful people. I know if I ever have a problem, they would be there for us."
