Listen: Kildare Community Worker Says People Are "Genuinely Starving".

: 03/14/2017 - 11:49

A Kildare community worker is highlighting the hardships some people continue to face.

Ger O'Neill says she's encountered a man with mental health difficulties who hadn't eaten in three days on his discharge from hospital as his social welfare payments had been stopped.

She's described the Dept. of Social Protection as "so severe" in its handling of many people's cases and says that "people are genuinely starving"

Ger has been speaking to Shane Beatty on this morning's edition of Kildare Today.
