Trócaire’s appeal to people of Donegal to support their work with refugees

Éamonn Meehan, Trócaire’s Executive Director is asking the people of Donegal to support Trócaire’s work with refugees and other vulnerable groups throughout the developing world this Christmas.
Last year, over €1m was donated to Trócaire’s Christmas appeal, allowing the humanitarian agency to provide life-changing support to communities in over 20 countries around the world.
Éamonn Meehan, Trócaire’s Executive Director said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to the people of Donegal for their continued support of Trócaire’s overseas programmes.
“I have seen the impact these donations have made on the ground. It is no exaggeration to say that they are life-changing.
“Now more than ever we need to give the gift of hope and solidarity to those experiencing conflict and extreme poverty in the developing world.
“Our Christmas appeal is vital for supporting our projects throughout the year, while our ethical Christmas Gifts range allows people in Donegal to buy real, practical gifts for some of the most vulnerable people in the world.”
Trócaire, working in Serbia, Greece, Syria and Lebanon, is responding to the urgent needs of Syrian refugees by providing them with shelter, hot food, shoes, hygiene kits, baby supplies and health services.
Trócaire also works with displaced people in countries such as Myanmar, Rwanda, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Donations to the organisation’s Christmas appeal will fund development and humanitarian projects throughout the developing world.
