Formed in 1973, Trócaire supports communities in their efforts to improve their lives, meet their basic needs and ensure their human dignity in a way that is both long term and sustainable.
Trócaire was set up in 1973 to help people living in the world’s poorest regions. Today we support communities in over 20 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East to bring about lasting change. Last year, we helped 2.4 million people around the world, including refugees from Syria and those living in some of the poorest places on earth like South Sudan, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
We provide practical aid in humanitarian emergencies like food, water and shelter, as well as supporting longer term projects like new irrigation systems and training in farming methods. We also help the communities we work with to challenge injustice and human rights abuses, for example supporting the Mayan people of Guatemala, who are being forcibly evicted from their land, to bring cases to court.
Thank you for considering leaving a gift to Trócaire. We are very grateful to receive legacies each year from people who have taken the extraordinary step of remembering us in their Will. Your kind support will help us reach many more people in the years to come.
