A photo taken at a soup restaurant shows the little girl eating from a plastic container last week.
Volunteers from Ballymun Soup Run, North Dublin, took the photo as they distributed food to families in need.
“Our government must be responsible for this,” explained the volunteer in the caption of the photo he uploaded.
To DublinLive, the volunteer said he was speechless with the photo he took.
“Four year old baby It has to be in our kitchen just to eat? The government should be ashamed of this, “he said.
According to him, these children should be in their own house. Not even being homeless and scavenging food.
The volunteer said he was so sad that the four-year-old girl had to queue to eat.
The founder of Feed Our Homeless, Tony Walsh, shared the photo while criticizing the Irish government.
Reported The Sun Sunday (18/4/2021), Walsh called the government shameful and irresponsible.
“No children, or people who are entitled to sit on the street enjoying their meal because they don’t have a place called home?” complained Walsh.
According to him, Ireland should not experience a housing crisis because it is one of the most prosperous countries in the world.
According to data from Focus Ireland, there were 8,313 people living on the streets from January 25 to 30.
This number has increased by 232 percent since July 2014. Nearly a third are children.
