Trócaire 2014 Lenten Campaign
The theme of this years Trócaire Lenten campaign is ‘Let Justice flow like a river’ (Amos 5:24) and the focus is on ‘Water’. In the African countries where Trócaire works 51% of people do not have access to clean water. The Trócaire box and poster this year features Enestina, a nine year old girl from Malawi. Until Trócaire worked with her community to develop a borehole, Enestina had to carry 15 litres of water twice a day a distance of 1 KM for her family. During the dry season the queue to get waters can take hours. As a result she frequently missed school or arrived there feeling tired.
Trócaire boxes will be available in our Church next weekend. You are welcome to take one for your home and/or place of work and use it during Lent. The people of Kildysart have been extremely generous in the past in support of the work of Trócaire.
