Since moving to Ireland early in 2020, 17-year-old Zimbabwean boy, Keith Khumalo and his family were offered direct provision in Ballinamore Co. Leitrim. They were very happy to have the opportunity to leave troubled Zimbabwe to be welcomed into a safe community in Ballinamore. Keith had only just started in his new school a few weeks when Covid 19 restrictions were put in place, leaving him very little chance to make friends in the area.
