Trócaire Collection for Pakistan

Trócaire is getting aid to survivors and we have launched an appeal to the Irish public for help. Trócaire has been working in Pakistan for more than twenty years, which means we have been well placed to respond quickly to this disaster and get help quickly to where it’s needed most.

Drawing on our emergency reserve and with funding from Irish Aid helped, we were able to launch our initial response but now more help by way of A National Church Collection for the flood victims in Pakistan, will be taken up in all Churches in the Diocese of Kerry this weekend the 28th and 29th of August. Trócaire is collaborating with Caritas International on the global Church response to the situation. We are calling on our supporters to give what they can to help some of the fifteen million people affected by the flood. The numbers affected are even greater than the Haiti earthquake and Asian tsunami combined.

Cecil Dunne, Trócaire’s emergency officer in Pakistan says the situation is really desperate for survivors. “Floodwaters have washed away people, homes, bridges, water systems and medical facilities. Survivors have been left with nothing, no homes, no food and no livestock. Yet more rain continues to fall.” Trócaire is getting food, water, water purification tablets, cooking utensils, high-energy biscuits for children and sanitary supplies to survivors. We have been in touch with the small number of Irish missionaries in Pakistan to offer any assistance they need to provide relief in their parishes and beyond.

In one area called Nowshera, in the northwest, our partners began providing pre-cooked meals to over 300 Families in Peshawar have lost everything and will need support in the coming weeks and months to rebuild their lives. As the floods swept through the northern districts, Trócaire began looking south to Sindh, where the waters would inevitably flow and where we worked with communities to prepare for the worst. We and our partners helped families prepare to move quickly to higher ground if the waters came, which they sadly did. Families were also stockpiling food, water and other essentials. This last few days, as the rains continued to pour, these evacuation plans became a reality.

Our work so far has included the evacuation of 8,000 such people trapped in at risk areas from the area surrounding Manchar Lake in the southern province of Sindh. In the northwest of Pakistan, Trócaire is already supporting another 10,000 survivors with food, water, water purification tablet, cooking utensils, high energy biscuits for children and sanitary supplies to vulnerable families.

Specifically, 5,700 families have received food packages, 4,500 families received packages containing blankets, plastic sheets for shelter and kitchen utensils, and 5,000 families have received hygiene kits. The threat of disease is huge. “All the water systems are contaminated so getting people clean water is crucial”, according to Cecil Dunne “Without clean water disease will spread like wildfire”. “People are extremely vulnerable and desperately need our support – not only in the coming weeks but in the coming months and years that it will take to rebuild communities.”

Justin Kilcullen, Director Trócaire.

If any person or group wishes to contribute, they may do so at all Masses this weekend or by dropping their contribution into the Presbytery in Dingle during the week.

Back to School

Aoibhinn beatha an scoláire

Bhíos ag déanamh léinn

Is follas díbh, a dhaoine

Gur dó is aoibhne in Éirinn

Gan smacht rí air ná ruire

Ná tiarna dá tríese

Gan chuid cíosa ag caibidil

Gan moich-éirí ná meirse.

Moch-éirí ná aoireacht

Ní thabhair uaidh choíche

´S ní mó do bheir dá aire

Fear faire san oíche.

Is maith biseach a sheisrí

Ag teacht taoisigh an earraigh

´S eadh is crannghail dá sheisrí

Lán a ghlaice de pheannaibh

Do bheir sé greas ar tháiplís.

´S ar chláirsigh go mbinne

Greas eile ar chuairtibh

´S ar chumann charad uime.


The Corporal Works of Mercy

The corporal works of mercy consist especially in feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and imprisoned, and burying the dead. Among all these, giving alms to the poor is one of the chief witnesses to fraternal charity: it is also a work of justice pleasing to God: He who has two coats, let him share with him who has none and he who has food must do likewise. But give for alms those things which are within; and behold, everything is clean for you. If a brother or sister is ill-clad and in lack of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what does it profit?

Par 2447 Catechism of the Catholic Church
