An Emergency Collection in aid of Trocaire’s work in East Africa will take place in our Parish this weekend 22nd- 23rd July. Nearly 25 million people in Somalia, Kenya, South Sudan and Ethiopia are currently in need of food and water due to drought. Trocaire is reaching over 150,000 people across the region with emergency food, water and sanitation.
