Trócaire Lenten Appeal
Trócaire just launched its 44th Trócaire box appeal. The Lenten box is Trócaire’s biggest national appeal and this year’s campaign highlights the scale of humanitarian need across the world. The family pictured on this year’s Trócaire box is from a village in Honduras that faces regular flooding from storms and rising sea levels. Trócaire’s project in the villages keep people safe by providing for safe evacuation while supporting their campaign for access to safer homes.
The organisation is continually responding to humanitarian crises around the world, including in South Sudan where the UN last week declared a famine. Trócaire is providing emergency food and water to people in South Sudan and donations to this year’s Lenten campaign will help the organisation expand its projects aimed at tackling hunger across the region. Miriam Gormally spoke with Eoghan Rice, Trócaire’s head of communication to find out more.
