DF Veteran John Davis Donates €1000 to ONE

Thank you to Defence Forces Veteran John Davis for his €1,000 donation from the sale of his pin badges to ONE’s Fuchsia Appeal to support homeless veterans and other veterans who may need assistance.

ONE supports the needs of Irish veterans by the provision of accommodation to homeless veterans in its Veterans’ Homes and the provision of other advice and support to veterans through its nationwide network of 35 Branches and 15 Veteran Support Centres.

Our first home opened in response to a number of veterans dying on the streets of Dublin. Since then, we’ve helped over 1,000 homeless veterans from all over Ireland who could have faced the same situation. Set against Ireland’s current homelessness crisis, the services of ONE are more vital than ever.

We currently provide almost 20,000 bed nights every year, between Dublin (35 bedrooms), Letterkenny (5 bedrooms), Athlone (6 bedrooms) and Cobh (5 bedrooms), and our Cork City House (6 bedrooms) is being planned, leading to the availability of 57 bedrooms nationwide for homeless veterans.
