2022-23 Trócaire Annual Report

In 2022/2023, Trócaire improved the lives of 1.58 million people in 23 of the most fragile countries in the world, thanks to the generous support of the Irish public.

This included supporting over 1.1 million people in humanitarian crises, 88,646 people to fight for access to justice in Central America, Palestine and Zimbabwe and 232,139 women and girls through empowerment programmes in fifteen countries.

Last year, Trócaire’s climate and environmental justice work supported 278,082 people in nine countries: Malawi, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Sierra, Leone, DRC, Somalia, South Kordofan (Sudan) and South Sudan.

Launching the report today, Trócaire warns that 2022/23 was dominated by hunger in the Horn of Africa, the war in Ukraine and a global cost-of-living crisis that is threatening to plunge an additional 71 million people into poverty. Another concerning trend is the continuing erosion of civil society space in many countries where Trócaire works.

The financial year 2022/23 saw the public donate €33m to Trócaire – donations that change the lives of some of the poorest people in the world.
This year, 2023 is very special for Trócaire as it marks its 50th anniversary. This special anniversary gives us an opportunity to highlight our past achievements and to thank people for their ongoing support on our journey for justice – but more importantly, it is owned by our brave partner organisations, who work every day to promote and protect the human rights of their own communities.
