people-1-300x200TROCAIRE EMERGENCY APPEAL €6,000!

Thank you to all who so generously contributed the outstanding amount of €6,000 Our heartfelt thanks.

Nearly 25 million people in Somalia, Kenya, South Sudan and Ethiopia are currently in urgent need of food and water due to drought. Trócaire is reaching over 150,000 people across the region with emergency food, water and sanitation. Needs are enormous – please support our appeal and help us reach more people with life-saving aid. The two worst affected countries in the region are Somalia and South Sudan, but parts of Ethiopia and Kenya are also badly hit. Ongoing conflict in South Sudan and Somalia has displaced millions of people and severely disrupted the food system. Climate change is also a huge factor. The region is experiencing a prolonged drought due to the multiple failures of rain over two years. Without the rain, crops have not grown and animals have died. This is causing huge suffering to the people. Without our interventions, the cycle of hunger will simply continue and deepen
