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 and Civil Society Challenge Fund.
Since that time, DFID 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, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
DFID is also providing funding to our programme in Somalia providing emergency health and nutrition servicesto drought affected communities, and in Myanmar providing humanitarian support to displaced communities in Kachin State.
This aid is provided impartially, directly to people in need, without discrimination of their race, ethnic group, religion, gender, age, nationality or political affiliation.
