Trócaire was set up in 1973 as a charity to express the concern of the Irish Catholic Church for the suffering of people living in the world’s poorest regions. Trócaire works in partnership with local and church organisations, supporting communities in developing countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East to bring about lasting change. Trócaire has a clear mandate to act on the humanitarian imperative, and works to ensure lives are saved, suffering reduced and human dignity maintained and protected in humanitarian crises resulting from natural disasters and conflict. Trócaire adheres to the Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross Movement and NGOs in Disaster
Relief (1994) and the Core Humanitarian Standards.
Trócaire is a member of Caritas Europa, and Caritas Internationalis, the Catholic Church’s global confederation of 160 development agencies, and CIDSE, an international alliance of Catholic development agencies working together for global justice.
