Sinn Féin Derry City Councillor Colly Kelly has urged people in the north west to support the annual Trocaire Lenten campaign.
This year’s campaign is supporting people in the developing world to improve their lives, meet their basic needs and is also aimed at safeguarding their dignity.
Speaking about the Irish charity’s work, Colr. Kelly said. “Trócaire works in over 20 countries throughout Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. In 2013-14, their programme work had a direct impact on the lives of over 3.4 million people in these regions.
“People in Derry and Donegal are always very good supporters of the annual Trocaire Lenten campaign and I would urge them once again this year to support this appeal.”
