This year Trocaire is highlighting the impact of conflict, drought, and climate change on families in Somalia. Perhaps you could have a box or a jam jar in the kitchen and drop a coin into it as often as you can for those who go hungry today. Please be mindful of their work this Lent. See for more details on what Trocaire has been doing since it began 50 years ago.
