TROCAIRE PAKISTAN UPDATE

It is now three months since devastating floods hit Pakistan and Trócaire has expressed sincere thanks to everyone that supported its emergency appeal.

Over the past few months people have generously donated over €5.5million to help survivors of the disaster. Almost half of this, €2.5million was raised as a result of the church collections that were held around the country in August. This figure is expected to increase to €4million in the coming weeks.

Thanks to the generosity of clergy and parishioners Trócaire was able to rescue over 20,000 people from the floodwaters in the first weeks of the disaster and provide more than 100,000 people with food, water, hygiene kits and other essentials. Trócaire is now providing seeds, tools and other essentials so that families can begin to recover and rebuild their livelihoods.

Trócaire would like to thank dioceses and parishes for their extraordinary response to the Pakistan crisis. For more information about how your support has changed lives log onto www.trocaire.org or call 1850 408 408
