About Tearfund Ireland

Each year more than 8 million people around the world die because they are too poor to stay alive. More than 800 million people go hungry each day. Over 100 million primary school-age children cannot go to school. The statistics are shocking and the challenges that face us are enormous.

Bringing hope and demonstrating love to the most vulnerable and marginalised people – through the local church.

At Tearfund we are prioritising the most vulnerable and marginalised people, working through churches and Christian organisations to bring help and hope to people living in dire poverty who aren’t being reached by other agencies. That’s why we have chosen to work with forgotten children, vulnerable woman, people affected by HIV, and in times of disaster to provide emergency relief to people who have lost everything.
