Olympic Μovement and Red Cross support the refugees

The Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI) donated in excess of €80,000 retail worth of New Balance sportswear to the Irish Red Cross for migrants arriving in Ireland under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme (IRPP).

The donation comes on receipt of a grant from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to the OCI. Additionally, the OCI gained the support of their Olympic Clothing sponsor New Balance in order to maximise the positive impact of the IOC grant. The donation, which consists of footwear and sports clothing for adults and children, will be distributed by the Irish Red Cross as part of their efforts to support refugees in Ireland.
