Pieta House recently received a donation of €10,000 from leading Irish ICT & Managed Services company, PFH Technology Group to help promote its work.

“Following a successful corporate partnership with PFH’s procurement brand,, which saw us contribute €5 to Pieta House for each quote requested, we have reached our goal of €10,000,” said Declan Van Esbeck, Chief Commercial Officer, PFH Technology Group.

“We’re delighted to be able to provide this significant donation to Pieta House in order to help those in suicidal crisis, those who self-harm and people bereaved by suicide,” said Van Esbeck. “When we started this campaign, we wanted to provide financial support but also, given that suicide remains a serious issue in Ireland, it was our intention to also raise awareness of the services and the free counselling offered by Pieta House. It has allowed PFH and our team to play a small part in supporting a worthwhile cause.”

At the presentation, Cindy O’Connor, Chief Clinical Officer, Pieta House, said, “Pieta is really grateful for the donation and the way PFH has acted positively to develop their campaign to help us. This funding will be put to good use to help prevent suicide and self-harm and to help promote our services nationwide.”
