Romero Fund

We set up the Romero Fund in 2017 with the aim of raising €2.1 million over the next three years.

Funding for our programmes in DR Congo, Guatemala, Palestine and Uganda & Sudan is becoming more and more difficult to secure, putting this vital work at risk. We now need to raise additional funds to ensure not only that we have enough funds to continue our work, but that we can grow our investment and reach even more people.

DR Congo

We support women and girls who live in fear of rape and abuse, and provide humanitarian aid including food, seeds and tools.

We provide legal aid and support to indigenous families to help claim back their land and challenge unjust evictions.

We work with women’s projects, fund legal support and provide counselling for traumatised children affected by ongoing conflict.


We help families who have survived terrible violence to start farming again, earn a living and rebuild their lives.

Who was Saint Oscar Romero?

John McColgan, Director of Riverdance, has become an Ambassador for the Romero Fund following his recent visits to both Palestine and Guatemala to see our work there first hand. He recently produced the acclaimed photography exhibition and documentary ‘This is Palestine’ following a visit to Gaza and the West Bank with Trócaire.
