Daily Misery is being inflicted on some of society's most vulnerable

Irish World

Recently, Rebecca Hoare’s fridge broke. Usually, such a problem would be an annoyance, but no more than that for the 74-year-old Irishwoman living alone in central London. In a Covid-19 world, however, it is a different matter.

Told like other over-70s in Britain to stay indoors, Hoare, originally from Waterford and living in London for 55 years, has received food deliveries a few times a week since the crisis broke. Life without a fridge was unsustainable.

Fortunately, help was at hand. Last Wednesday, she received a call from the Irish Elderly Advice Network (IEAN), which has been ringing through a list of nearly 3,000 phone numbers of the elderly Irish living in London.
