The Minister of State for Overseas Development Aid and Diaspora, Colm Brophy, T.D., today announced over €21 million in Irish Aid funding to Trócaire for its development and humanitarian work overseas, as well as for public engagement and development education work in Ireland.
Announcing the funding, Minister Brophy said:
“I am pleased to confirm this funding support for Trócaire, continuing its long-standing relationship with Irish Aid to support the delivery of development assistance and humanitarian aid around the world.
“Trócaire and its partners operate in some of the most challenging environments in the world; in violent and insecure contexts. For example, the Irish Government is proud to support Trócaire’s work in the ‘Northern Triangle’ of Central America, specifically in Guatemala and Honduras, as well as in Nicaragua, where it is tackling climate change and degradation of natural resources, which are driving insecurity and migration”.
