About Trócaire

Trócaire was established by the Catholic Church in 1973 as a way for Irish people to donate to development and emergency relief overseas. Our dual mandate is to support the most vulnerable people in the developing world, while also raising awareness of injustice and global poverty in Ireland.

How we work

Trócaire works with local and church partners to support communities in over 20 developing countries with a focus on food and resource rights, women's empowerment and humanitarian response.
