This Christmas, you can help children around the world with Trócaire’s selection of sustainable and ethical gifts.
This year, Trócaire has a range of new gifts that help families worldwide. This includes the Gift of Family Essentials (€35) that will bring vital comfort to children and families caught up in conflict in countries like Gaza, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Ukraine. Your Gift of Family Essentials will provide families with survival kits, emergency dignity kits and food baskets. It will make all the difference to a family who have lost everything this Christmas. The Mental Health Lifeline Gift (€50) also provides the people of Gaza access to vital mental health care.

This Christmas, you can also help the world’s most vulnerable children who are being impacted by the devastating effects of climate change with Trócaire’s range of climate gifts. The Gift of Seeds and Tools (€15) provides families with everything they need to plant, tend and grow healthy, nutritious, fresh fruit and vegetables.
A new Protection from Climate Change Gift (€100) will help struggling families respond to the effects of extreme weather by providing drought-resistant seeds, equipment to store limited rainfall, and trees that help to reduce flooding and enrich the soil. This is the ideal gift to help restore hope and justice for families and communities who have been devastated by climate change.

You can also support women and girls worldwide with the Gift of Menstrual Dignity (€10) to provide girls with supplies for a safe and hygienic period, and a Women’s Empowerment Gift (€100) which helps set up women-led savings and loans groups to support local women to set up their own businesses.
Trócaire’s gifts include favourites like beehives (€65) for drought-stricken farmers in the Horn of Africa to school kits (€30) and lunches (€20) for children across the world. With 22 to choose from, ranging from €5 to €1,400, each Trócaire gift will support critical work across the developing world.
