Trócaire 50th Anniversary ConferenceLearn More
Message from Éamonn Meehan, Trócaire Executive Director
There has been extensive media coverage over recent weeks of the financial practices that appear to have been carried out at a domestic Irish charity.
Like everybody else in the country, I have been shocked and dismayed by what has emerged.
I want to make clear Trócaire’s position:
Last week I was in Ethiopia where I met with some of the 600,000 people in that country who are receiving emergency relief through Trócaire to help them through the current drought crisis. Our programmes in Ethiopia – funded through your generosity – are delivering vital aid to people experiencing the worst drought in decades.
Last year alone we brought support and relief to 2.4 million people across the developing world.
We understand that when you donate to Trócaire you are trusting us to put that donation to best use to tackle poverty and injustice overseas. That is a responsibility we take extremely seriously.
I want you to know that Trócaire is committed to best financial practice. We are transparent, accountable and determined to work with our supporters in Ireland to end the scandal of poverty and injustice in the developing world.
As well as outlining our finances, our most recent Annual Report also tells stories of transformation in some of the communities we work in.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
