In memory - Bethany Home

Added on July 14, 2009

clip_image002.jpgBethany Home - In memory

Children born in the Bethany Home from 1921-1972. For those children who died before the age of 5, for all of those people who survived, but have had health problems to deal with throughout their lives, through the lack of care given to them as small children whilst in this home.

The Irish government was hoping that no-one would ever find out, the church of Ireland sadly has been missing in speaking up for these children to be included in the re-address bill.

People who see this little note kindly donate a little flower in their name. God bless all.

A Victim.

Amazing Breakthrough

To date Dereks two books have helped uncover 219 unmarked Childrens Graves in Mount Jerome Cemetry, Dublin. Following on from this, Derek is leading a campaign to build a memorial for these Children. You can read more about this campaign and how you can help here.

Dereks aim is to increase international awareness of the suffering of Children born in the Bethany Home and help survivors come to terms with their own experiences.
