Trócaire 50th Anniversary ConferenceLearn More
Never before has the entire world faced a crisis at the scale of the Coronavirus. Countries must work together to defeat the virus – as Dr. Mike Ryan from the World Health Organisation has said, “none of us are safe until all of us are safe”.
Trócaire is proud to be partnering with Irish Aid, the overseas development and humanitarian programme of the Irish Government, to reduce the risks to some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people.
Trócaire’s programmes around the world are helping to stop the spread of the virus, as well as providing support to people who are infected.
Irish Aid has provided Trócaire with €230,000 to support this work. Over half of this grant – €125,000 – will fund our health programmes in Somalia. The remaining €105,000 will be used to fund COVID-19 programmes in Myanmar, Ethiopia, Uganda, South Sudan, Syria and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
