ElectricAid’s funding of €5,000 each for Concern, Plan Ireland, Christian Aid and Trócaire was presented today (29.03.2017) outside ESB Fitzwilliam Street. All of these agencies are on the ground in various countries – your funds will be used well, and used immediately.
The reason for the “photo-opp” was simple. Despite the scale of the food crisis (affecting 22 million people) we are still in the consciousness and concern-raising phase – there simply is not the public awareness out there of this humanitarian disaster. All 4 agencies, and ElectricAid, will use images from this morning to drive awareness.
Pictured (L to R) are James Foley (ElectricAid), Alex Reihill (Christian Aid), Claire Concannon, (Concern), Maria Cleary (Trócaire) and Sabrina Kevany (Plan).
