Irish government ordered Indian family in Cork to leave the country, let us join hands to help this family

Cork: An Indian family in Cork, who has been living in Ireland for three years, is facing deportation. The family recently gained popularity online by distributing handmade face masks.

Raminder Singh came from India to Ireland three years ago with his wife Harinder Kaur and their three children. He currently resides at the Kinsale Road Direct Provision Center.

In January this year, the family received a letter from the government informing them that they cannot remain in Ireland. They are now on the verge of deportation.

They are very active in the community and have recently gained online popularity by distributing face masks made by themselves free of charge in the Cork City Centre. Face masks are handcrafted by Harinder.

Youngest son Gurcharan plays cricket for Cork County. Daughter Sandeep wants to train as a beautician and start her own business in Cork. The eldest son, Gursewak, is a talented tabla player. He also performs with the Citadel Band in Cork.

Family friend Dawood Khan said the family wanted to stay here, and they’re very happy. They have some life-threatening problems in their homeland and therefore did not want to go back. That is why they are struggling and trying their best to stay here, he added.

Friends are preparing to submit an online petition to the government to help the family of five. Currently, the petition has been signed by 2,000 people. However, the number of signatures needed to file a case needs to be increased to 10,000.

Let each of us join hands to help this family who want to stay and live in Ireland.
