Message from Trocaire
Proverbs 21:26'...the righteous gives and does not hold back.' During this Advent season our thoughts are with those people in the world's poorest countries who cannot feed their children, don't have enough water, can't get an education, have no healthcare when they are sick and whose human rights are abused. Trocaire's Global Gifts are a perfect way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and help the poor. Log on to www.trocaire.org/globalgift or call 1850 408 408 (0800 912 1200 in NI)
