Trocaire has thanked the people of Co. Tipperary for their exceptional generosity during the Christmas season in supporting the world’s poorest people, as the organisation launched its Christmas gifts range.
The overseas aid agency revealed that Co. Tipperary bought ethical gifts to the value of €27, 807 last Christmas. Eamonn Meehan, Executive Director, said: “Last Christmas, people from Co. Tipperary continued their long tradition of compassion towards people facing poverty. Because of this, we were able to provide families in countries such as Malawi and Somalia with gifts from Ireland, vital lifelines such as chickens, goats, healthcare and education. As we once again enter into the Christmas season, I would like to say a heartfelt thanks to everyone in Co. Tipperary, who so kindly included on their Christmas shopping lists, gifts to support struggling families in poor communities overseas.
Trocaire’s Christmas gifts are on sale on trocaire.org or by calling 1850 408 408.
