Every Lent, the Trócaire boxes arrive to remind us to share what fortune we have with those who are less well off. This year the focus is on adapting to a changing climate, something which is hitting the developing world more and with graver consequences. Communities in developing countries are suffering from ongoing extreme water shortages due to climate change. They are working harder than ever to support themselves, but unreliable rainfall makes it difficult to grow their crops. Trócaire is working to change this.
Miriam Gormally spoke with Eoghan Rice, communications officer with Trócaire to find out more. He began by telling her about the generous support the boxes get as well as the story of the girl on this year’s box.
