Sinn Féin Councillor Sharon Duddy has appealed to people in Derry ,Donegal and Tyrone to support charity Trócaire in their annual Christmas appeal.
Councillor Duddy said
“All too often in the rush towards Christmas people buy presents which in many cases are never opened or used. This year I would ask people in Derry and our neighbouring counties of Donegal and Tyrone to consider buying a Trócaire gift which will nor only help people in the Yemem but also places like South Sudan.
“Trócaire also works with partners in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) and Israel to support those affected by conflict and human rights violations, as well as helping to raise international awareness around the injustice of human rights violations.
“There is an online facility which means people don’t even have to leave the house and by the click the of a button are helping the less fortunate in the other side of the world.
“I would like to congratulate Trócaire for all their efforts and help in emergencies and disasters that have affected many parts of world in the past twelve months. The work they carry out is invaluable.
