Fathers’ Day is a particularly difficult time for those Dads who have been bereaved of a child or children. Anam Cara’s #Daddyandme campaign aims to raise awareness of the difficulties bereaved Dads face.
As part of this campaign Anam Cara will is launching their video resource ‘A Dad’s Grief’ which has contributions from bereaved Dads on how the death of their child impacted on them and what helped on their journey through grief and loss and what did not.
Michael McEnery ‘Mac’ who features on this video also shares his story after the death of his precious daughter Annabel to help other bereaved Dads know they are not alone on their journey.
This June, Anam Cara is asking members of the public to take part in the #Daddyandme campaign and donate €4 by texting SUPPORT to 50300 to raise funds to provide support services to Dads and families who have experienced the death of a child.
We are delighted to have International rugby player Mike Ross on board as our #Daddyandme ambassador. Here he is with Anam Cara’s John Hynes launching the campaign.
