Before, you knew us for our droughts, our poverty. But now the poor are transforming this country, and poverty shall no longer be our name.

Where We Work
Tearfund Ireland gives priority to the most marginalised and the most vulnerable in fragile states and least developed countries.
As Christians we believe that God calls us to ‘whole-of-life’ Christianity and to live out our faith as ‘salt and light’ in the world we live in. Tearfund Ireland is a leading voice on issues of social justice and is a vehicle by which individual Christians and churches can actively engage in responding to extreme poverty and injustice overseas.
Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.
Isaiah 1:17 (NIV)
