CARI (Children At Risk In Ireland) is a leading voluntary organisation that provides child-centered specialised therapy and support to children, families, and groups affected by child sexual abuse. The CARI foundation is a registered charity that has two full-time centres one in Dublin and one in Limerick. The Limerick Centre serves the whole of the Munster region.
CARI helps those who have been affected by abuse and supports them during their recovering process, working to ensure that child sexual abuse is seen as an experience but not a defining event in the child’s life. The foundation gives children a safe environment filled with hope, trust, and confidence, which lead them to a path of recovery through therapy. The non-profit organisation has been shining a light for children for over 25 years. CARI Family Fun Day Fundraiser
On Sunday, September 25, 2016, CARI will be hosting a CARI Family Fun Day in the UL Arena from 12 o clock until 5pm. All the proceeds made on the day will go directly to CARI and the Children’s Ark University Hospital and the Neo-Natel Unit in the Regional Maternity Hospital. The aim of the CARI Family Fun Day is to raise much-needed funds for these three great causes and it is in conjunction with Limerick’s 95FM 95 Stop Tour for Limerick Kids. Live 95FM will broadcast from the UL Arena on the day. CARI Family Fun Day Fundraiser
