Our Love through our Trócaire Boxes this Lent: As our eyes and hearts open to the great sorrow in Ukraine, please let us also remember loving families who continue to suffer in terrible forgotten crises worldwide. In the face of Covid, poverty, and climate change, they are struggling for a future so far from the media spotlight that help won’t have a hope of reaching them unless we, together, act this Lent. Going days without eating, grieving with no one noticing, their future and the potential of this world, hanging in the balance. Please return your box over Easter. (It helps transferring to notes).
