Trócaire’s funding relationship with the UK Government dates back to 2006. In the past we have had funding under a number of grant schemes including the Global Poverty Action Fund, Civil Society Challenge Fund and now the UKAID Match.
Since that time, the FCDO funding has enabled Trócaire to carry out development and humanitarian work in many countries across Africa and Asia. This includes the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Myanmar, Somalia, South Sudan, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
FCDO is also providing funding to our programme in Somalia providing emergency health and nutrition services to drought affected communities, and in Myanmar providing humanitarian support to displaced communities in Kachin State. FCDO is also providing funding through its UK Aid Match programme to hunger and poverty alleviation projects in South Sudan and Zimbabwe.
This aid is provided impartially, directly to people in need, without discrimination of their race, ethnic group, religion, gender, age, nationality or political affiliation. Partnership is at the heart of what we do with this funding.
