Seeing the impact of Lent donations in Zimbabwe - Trócaire

Cross posted from Trócaire's own website


In November 2016, a Bishops Delegation travelled to Zimbabwe to see Trócaire's work firsthand. 

[From a west Limerick point of view our own Bishop Brendan was one of the bishops who went to see the impact as well as Bishop Phonsie Cullinan formerly of Rathkeale parish in west Limerick 😃]
Four bishops, accompanied by Trócaire staff, visited Trócaire projects and saw the impact of Irish public's generous Lenten donations.

The group visited projects ranging from water schemes which provide clean water sources for families to drink and to grow food, to projects supporting people living with HIV, to legal support for familes fighting injustices.
